SSHGuard protects hosts from brute-force attacks against SSH and other
services. It aggregates system logs and blocks repeat offenders using one of
several firewall backends.
To enable SSHGuard at startup, add the following line to your 'rc.conf':
Starting SSHGuard through syslogd(8) is discouraged and not supported.
Configure SSHGuard by editing BACKEND in '/usr/local/etc/sshguard.conf'. See
sshguard-setup(7) for instructions on setting up your firewall.
Please note that a few rc script parameters have been renamed to
better reflect the documentation:
sshguard_safety_thresh -> sshguard_danger_thresh
sshguard_pardon_min_interval -> sshguard_release_interval
sshguard_prescribe_interval -> sshguard_reset_interval
