Can we make ssh to accept connection from only one IP?


Is that possible?

That would be ideal scenario.

1-ServerB has id B.
2-workStationA use id B to login.
3-if any other ip other then workStationA tries to log to ServerB with id B, server B will drop the connection.

Curious to know which Linux distro you are using?
