3 I am running OpenSSH on my home gentoo server. I was examining the
4 log files for OpenSSH and I noticed multiple login attempts from the
5 same IP address but with different user names. Is there a simple way
6 that I can block an IP address from attempting to log in after
7 something like 3 failed login attempts?
9 My Gentoo box is connected to a linksys router connected to my cable
10 modem, the linksys is doing port forwarding to my gentoo box. Also, I
11 would like to avoid limiting which IP addresses can log into my SSH
12 server
14 Thanks for any ideas,
15 James
