Getting locked out of your box for 3 hours wouldn't bother you?

if you dont remember the password no one can help things
It's not just failed login attempts. For instance, an innocent
ping could lock you out, if you have your dynamic firewall configured that way.

all you need is to stop people from dictionary attacking ssh or ftp (thats what the guy is after) ... binding to ports is totally unneccessary ... just use sshutout .. which examines /var/log/secure for suspicious activity ... it doesnt bind to ports .. it just reads logs, then adjusts iptables if neccessary
talk about skinning a cat with a blunt stone ... sheesh
