Normally I would say it is impossible, but I do not know everything
about PAM, jails and so on. The file system persmissions are not based
on the IP a user came from, so you need to tweak a lot! If I really
had to do such things I would write a shell script that looks up from
where the user came and setup the enviromnet accordingly and make this
shell script the login shell. But this is lot of work and someone has
to be very carefull...
