Need to restrict login times for vsftp

We have a situation where we want to be able to block anonymous users from accessing the FTP server at a certain time at night.

After upgrading to Redhat 9.0, we decided to use VSFTP instead of Wu-ftp. Restricting times that a user can login was easy with Wu-ftpd. I have checked the man page for vsftpd.conf and can't find any references to restrict login times.

In wu-ftpd you could use a command called 'limit all' in the ftpaccess file.

Does anyone if there is a way to prevent anonymous users from logging into the server at night?
