thank you in advance for reading this post.

when i check my log i have a steady stream of attacks from servers in asia...

are these attacks what one gets constantly and now i have the power to see them thru Mikrotik or should i be taking a more serious approach to blocking these attacks.

should i just let the box do it´s job?

i feel like i have a whole class of computer geeks trying my box on a daily basis for the last three months.

Pretty normal. What ports or services are they "attacking"? Easy to block that stuff via firewall input chain.

ssh & ftp are alwasy getting hit.
I just block them to outside my network

disable and redirect services to a non standard port?

I'd try something like
1021 = ftp
1022 = ssh

of course if your passwords are secure then there's no real need to do this, just an added layer of security.
