Enable the adaptive firewall in OS X Server
Authored by: comodin on Oct 11, '12 10:41:05AM

I prefer fail2ban, cause I can configure for each services its own fail-conditions.
SSH 1st fail = ban for 24h, but FTP 5th fail = ban for 20min etc.

1st fail 24 hr ban? That's funny. I almost never successfully login to ssh the first time. Long passwords and all...

I use ssh-key , no password.. but the scriptkiddies try to login with password. To ban this folks first fail is set to ban.
