Limit logins to verified IP Addresses - for just WHM logins?

    I am trying to figure out if there is a good way to get the result of the verified IP address feature but just for WHM logins. Today, if you activate verified IP addresses, then even your cPanel end users must provide answers to security questions, and presumably they can enter verified IPs for themselves? I really want to lock down root users and resellers in WHM to specific IPs but not do anything to affect hosting end users.

    What is the best way to go about accomplishing my goal? Do I need to go a different route for some form of a hosts.allow rule?

    thanks!

    I saw that post in my searching. If that's the correct approach, what is the current name of the WHM daemon to use in the config file? I don't see a separate whostmgrd on my machines.

    Make sure that you don't lock yourself out accidentally. :D

    Worked fine - thanks. Now, if my client address ever changes, I expect I'll have to SSH in and edit hosts.allow manually...
