How do I manage the number of users on Filemaker Server?

I am just setting up FMS and I understand that FM limits the number of users who can access my server at any given time. So for example I currently have the license for 5. Now if I give the IP to 5 clients what happens when they share that IP address with people on their team? If there are 5 people say in one company all accessing my server it would effectively mean my other 4 clients wouldn't be able to access or am I missing something here?

 

If this is indeed the case is there a way to only allow one user from that company? Basically preventing them from sharing the IP with other team members? Sorry if I seem naive here but this is new to me and am just trying to get my head around how it will work. Thank you.
