We currently have our virtual environment locked down to a few users with access, we would like to restrict those users to certain IP's - I am unable to find the settings to allow me to do this - any help would be great!

Are you using just ESXi or vCenter Server as well ?

Limit the Access using Permissions, in Active Directory and/or vCenter Server.

So can you not grant permissions, via vCenter Server to disallow users that you do not want to connect and manage?

If you want to still Restrict IP Addresses, see this Article here
