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

    to /etc/hosts.deny. Replace with the user's static IP address.

    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.

    AllowGroups <group_name>
