You've not indicated which kernel you used (it should be bsd.mp), nor have you included a dmesg so that the more experienced users can help you with your problem, if indeed there is one. Also, I understand that English is probably not your native language, but I'm having a little trouble

Re: is there a way to block sshd trolling?

2005-09-23 Thread Abraham Al-Saleh
You could use connection throttling, it won't eliminate them, but it will make it take longer. If you don't need ssh on that host (although, you probably do, I'd be lost without it) disable it. You could bind sshd to a different port, and disable port 22 (most of these attacks are automated bots).

It's a good scripting language because of how well regular expressions are integrated into the language. It's also easy to pick up and use, because it's pretty lenient in specific syntax. I can't recommend a book though, as most of what I know of perl has been from reading other peoples scripts
