    Fail2ban vs Denyhosts vs Iptables

    The problem is that I am still getting logs that showing IP addresses trying to login and connect to SSH. I need a firewall to stop these. Reading that Fail2ban, Denyhosts and Iptables are best choices for this but not sure which is the best. What are your suggestions and how do people on Forum Web Hosting handle this problem?

    CSF is the best solution and we can recommend. Simple, lightweight and does its job pretty darn well. It also has integration with all major control panels, if not, you can still set it up it through CLI.

    Most of these programs are just a font end for IPtables (this is the firewall)

    I would go with CSF https://configserver.com/cp/csf.html easy to setup and provides a simple rules management tool. If you have WHM on your server you could just enable cPHulk with a couple of clicks which is also a decent firewall solution.

    You can change ssh port from 22 to any you want. What do you have now firewall or iptables ?
    Just make sure that you allow ssh connetion trought that port.
