How to detect if a user has logged in via SSH and reject connection if not on HP UX

A number of local UNIX accounts on our HP UX v B.11.31 server are not permitted to connect via Telnet.

I have added the following into the users .profile file:-

# Check is SSH Session and end if not
if [[ -z "$SSH_CLIENT" ]]
then
	tput cup 22 1
	tput ed
	print "\033[33;7mThis use is only permitted to connect via SSH.\033[0m"
	sleep 5
	exit
fi

But upon logon get the error:-

{HOME:-.}/.profile[31]: SSH_CLIENT: parameter not set

Any help much appreciated.
