    hi all u guys,

    im using ispconfig, with vsftpd and sshd and i want to prevent brute force attacks to ftp & ssh i found blockhosts script but im having some problems,it seems that spawn does not launches blockshosts script in every connection, because when i run it manually then it works perfectly, i've configure sshd & vsftp in inetd but i think that is a problem with tcp_wrappers,

    does anybody know how to install or configure tcp_wrappers for this services in ubunt?

    thks a lot u all :p

    You should have installed Proftpd instead of vsftpd. It is supported much better by ISPConfig and doesn't need tcp_wrappers...
