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?
