User login limit on vsftpd

Does anyone know if there is a limit that one user can log into vsftpd from multiple IP addresses? ie. Can I use the same username and password to login from two different machines? If so, what's the limit on the number of machines that can do so?

As far as a search engine told me, the default value allows 10 different machines (or better 10 sessions). You can modify this with MaxStartups parameter [1].

Umm, the OP asked about VSFTP:
https://security.appspot.com/vsftpd.html
Which is NOT SFTP (which yeah, is better than any ftp*).
