Maximum new connections / per second



  • Hi,

    I'm attempting to put a firewall rule in place stop SSH brute force attacks.

    I've set the Destination port to 22, and set a limit of 5 connections per 120 seconds.

    This works great, however, the block seems to last for a very long time (hours)?  Can someone tell me what sets how long the block on the host will last?

    Thanks,

    Elliot



  • Hi can you tell me how to know who brute force the box and also how to set limit of connections on ssh?

    Thanks
