 Not true. I use and recommend the package 'denyhosts' - Nice little

Which distribution includes that package?
RHEL/CentOS (via rpmforge)

# rpm -q denyhosts





Debian Etch definitely has denyhosts (I just checked mine), and I hear (though haven't yet verified) that Ubuntu Feisty and later also has it.  I'll check that out on my Feisty box when I get to work.  However, I do have a Dapper box handy, so I just now verified that Dapper does *not* have it, at least on PowerPC (fail2ban is there, though, so we still win).

If your distro doesn't have it in the repositories, then just go here:


Do you GNU?
