[shorewall]: Limiting SSH connections
 
Hello,

Running shorewall 3.0.7-1 on Debian SID.

I'm trying to implement the shorewall built-in Limit action, but it doesn't work. Here's the excerpt from my /etc/shorewall/rules file.

Code:

SECTION NEW
Limit:info:SSHL,2,60    net    fw      tcp    ssh
ACCEPT                  net    fw      tcp    ssh

BTW, shorewall check reports
iptables "Recent Match: Available".
Processing /usr/share/shorewall/action.Limit for Chain %Limit...

Then shorewall restart. Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong and the system still gives more than 2 SSH prompts per minute?

TiA

Just one tiny "bump", there must be some kind soul out there that can help. ;)

TiA!
