One question - I'm a dummie when it comes to firewalls (in general) or
IPTables (in particular) -
In the SSH section, how hard would it be to add a rule to immediately
ban any IP that tried to log into SSH as root? I always disable remote
root login, and never allow anyone near my box that doesn't know (and
agree with the reason) why... so anyone who ever tries to is an
unwelcome intruder - and if someone forgets, they'll just have to call
me and confess, and I'll have to remove the ban manually.
Anyway, many thanks for this - I'll have to spend some time studying it...
