Controlling who connects to the 400 via FTP and ODBC

Is it possible to control which users are allowed to connect to an AS/400 via FTP and ODBC?

If you change to require all FTP requests to use Trivial File Transfer Protocol, you can limit the number of sessions with the CHGTFTPA command. ODBC connections cannot be limited, as far as I know, unless you write a user exit program for the Native Database Connection and the SQL Connection processes. Then tracking who has made a request would be a nightmare to track, because you can't tell the difference between a request from another system and a specific user who has made multiple requests.
