Disable ssh access for password-guessing bots
Authored by: eddiem5 on Oct 10, '08 08:32:12AM

There are a few other choices you might want to look at..

1) Denyhosts
Similar to what you built but has a clearing service where you can download IP's from other users of denyhosts.. Google it..

2) Have you looked at the adaptive firewall already in Mac OSX??

Try man afctl

No manual entry for afctl
