How to install BFD?

Postby a24uall » Sun Jul 01, 2012 3:35 pm

BFD which notifies you of authentication failures. BFD works in conjunction with the firewall to place real time bans on offending IPs. Any IP found to be having too many exim, ftp, or sshd login failures within a given amount of time will be banned by the firewall. This effectively prevents brute force attacks against your users or system users

Download the tar file first to any of your preferred location
cd /usr/local/src/

Code: Select all
wget http://www.rfxn.com/downloads/bfd-current.tar.gz

tar -xvzf bfd-current.tar.gz
cd bfd-1.5
./install.sh

CONFIGURATIONS

Default is
vi /usr/local/bfd/conf.bfd

But Any values in
vi /usr/local/bfd/rules/cpanel
will override the default file.

To check the trigger value grep the file with key word "TRIG"
