You have some problem. If it's in deny.hosts it can't get to the sshd server, unless you have something wrong on the server.
Yes I do, with constant banging on the service port. Adding a service in hosts.deny won't stop someone from continuously hitting it and generating a bunch of 'tcpwrappers (unknown, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) rejection' messages in syslog. CONSTANTLY. However, if I reset the connection and block them for the next 120 seconds, it has, so far, proven to completely stop the constant banging. They try once, get a reject (from hosts.deny) and the second time they try iptables drops their connection they go away. Case closed.
