2011-01-03 04:57:32     [2009R1.1-RC4] Failban or alternative?

I went through the options but didn't find the Failban application so I could stop accepting registration attempts from a given IP after X failed attempts.


Did I miss it, or if it's not part of uClinux-dist, is there an alternative solution?



Thank you.

do you actually mean fail2ban ?  it is not in the dist.  it is also a bit fat and requires python, so unless you need python for something else, seems like you should write your own simpler log parser.
