Bruteforce ssh prevention

Thu Nov 13, 2014 3:12 am

I added the firewall filters to help prevent bruteforce logins on ssh per the instruction at:

http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Bruteforc ... %26_SSH%29

I see continual attempts that trace back to China trying to ssh in, but when I go to: /ip firewall address-list and issue print command, nothing is ever there.
Is there something else I need to do?

Since posting this I also found the following suggestion and changed everything accordingly

So, the latter in my understanding of what it should do is not working. I'm watching right now attempted ssh logins, dozens in a row from the same ip all for root. But the rules never applied. Any ideas what's going on?

Check the rules order and if address lists are filled.
