    This is one of those topics you need to do a ton of research on, nobody can just say "click x then type z" and then your server will be secure.

    All I can say is check out CSF.

    If you use webmin, there's a nice webmin module for csf that makes setup a breeze.

    That said, you may also want to consider fail2ban, which is a log-based brute-force blocker. You can find at RPMforge for CentOS/RHEL, or in the Debian/Ubuntu repos.
