Auto-block ssh brute force attacks using built-in tools (OpenBSD and Linux)

Posted 08-30-2012 at 01:28 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I've run a cool trick for a while on my OpenBSD firewall at home, where traffic from any given ip address and port 22 on the firewall is rate limited. If an ip exceeds the given rate, it is put into a ban list (table, actually) that the firewall is configured to drop all traffic from. It works well, and the same functionality can be setup in Linux, too.

xterm to display wide font properly

Posted 08-28-2012 at 03:02 PM by ted_chou12

I was trying to use export LANG=zh_TW.UTF8, so that my command line at least give me some feedback in chinese. But despite of a readable font, it doesnt display correctly, because the characters seem to show up with spaces inbetween. That looked ugly. So I searched on the web to customize the font in my ./~XDefaults finally:
Code:
!xsession*windows_manager: icewm-rox
!xsession*sound_server: jackd

xterm*title:		Xterm
xterm*font:		-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--18-120-100-100-c-90-iso10646-1
