    Hi,

    Im running cPanel on freeBSD 4.10 and would like to receive an email notification on each unsuccesfull attempt to login as root through ssh. Could anyone point me in the direction of how to go about it?

    Cheers:)

    Unfortunately that tutorial is for when someone succesfully logs in, i want to be notified upon UN-succesffull attempts so i can block the IP if applicable:)

    Thanks though:)
