Hi Paul, fail2ban is looking promising, and I have it already installed since years. It is more expandable than sshguard, as it is checking more services than ssh. Both are using the same techniques - both are checking logfiles and then change firewall rules. I think, for me fail2ban is more interesting than sshguard. I wonder, why denyhots is being deleted from the repo. Ok, there were security issues in the past, but these are fixed now. And ok, it does not support IPV6, but I think, most private users might not used it. For the moment I will stay with denyhosts, but fail2ban is in the testing pahase here. And maybe others have more ideas, we will see. Best Hans > Maybe have a look at fail2ban this seems to fit the description of what > you're looking for.
