restrict connection to specific host or hosts

Would it be possible to restrict connection to specific host or hosts.

I can provide the user with "putty" but I want to hardcode the protocol
SSH and the destination host in the utility, if I give the user
putty.exe, then they would be able to telnet or SSH to any host they
type in.  Since it is a contractor I don't want to give them that much

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Restrictions in the client software are close to pointless, since
they can almost always be bypassed anyway.

If you're really concerned about the network connections your
contractor is able to make, you should place a firewall between
their computer and the rest of the world, and have it only let
through the connections you want.
