Re: [opensuse] dictionary attacks



* Benji Weber <b.weber@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> [07-16-07 05:04]:
set the following line

FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_EXT="0/0,tcp,22,,hitcount=3,blockseconds=120,recentname=ssh"

in /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 This will limit to a maximum of 3
attempts per 120s.

This works *very* well, even better than fail2ban, imo. Is there a
similar line that will effect the same on postifx attempts rather than
using fail2ban?

tks,
