    Hi guys,

    Due to lots of (failed) brute force attempts over SSH, I've decided to change my SSH port to 30.

    I opened up /etc/ssh/sshd_config and changed the port in there and restarted SSH and it works fine. However, when I did that, I started getting these e-mails titled "Status warning from" every 5 minutes:

    Obviously SSH is being restarted each time. I assume that it does not like my port change - why is this? How do I stop these e-mails from being sent?

    Thanks :)
