block pptp hacking on wan pptp server port

Thu Aug 01, 2013 5:16 pm

one question if some have idea how to solve it.

I have router with public IP on WAN side. ether 2 is LAN and all works well.
On router I have PPtP server for which is used for our traveling employees. Everyone have username and password to connect to office.

Now some robot detected that my PPtP server is on and on every second try to establish connection and almost every time from some different IP all over the globe.

My log is full with
15:53:43 pptp,info TCP connection established from
15:53:43 pptp,ppp,info <pptp-0>: waiting for call...
15:53:43 pptp,ppp,info <pptp-0>: terminating... - cntrl message too big
15:53:43 pptp,ppp,info <pptp-0>: disconnected

how to make fail to ban on pptp server. One wrong authorization and that IP is going out for 10 days?

I think to add source to address list like this

ros code

/ip firewall filter
add action=add-src-to-address-list address-list=pptp2 address-list-timeout=10h chain=input comment=pptp connection-state=new disabled=no dst-port=1723 protocol=tcp src-address-list=pptp
add action=add-src-to-address-list address-list=pptp address-list-timeout=10h chain=input connection-state=new disabled=no dst-port=1723 protocol=tcp
