Re: a record?
I said many times - just use non standard port. Number of hackerts who discover this port wil decrease approx 10,000 times, to almost 0 (number). (Of course, except if you are a bank). Other approach exists as well - SecureID on firewall. Login to firewall, authenticate, and have dynamic access list which opens ssh for you (and still keep ssh on port != 22). ----- Original Message ----- From: "Patrick W.
