If the user has a static IP address, you can add

Code:
sshd: 12.34.56.78
to /etc/hosts.deny. Replace 12.34.56.78 with the user's static IP address.

Cool Blocking, Allowing users for SSH




vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config

# To allow only certain users >> Allows only user1 and user2 to login via SSH

AllowUsers user1 user2 user3

# To block certain users >> Blocks only user5 and user6

DenyUsers user5 user6

You can use allowed group as well, that way you just add users to the group.

Code:
AllowGroups <group_name>
