    APF Help

    I tried installing APF and then realized it wouln't work with a VPS so I uninstalled it.

    I have removed the folder, binaries and all apf files.

    However in my logs I still have root running '/etc/init.d/apf stop' running 288 times per day.

    I have looked in the cron tab and dont see anything and I dont have the file /etc/init.d/apf. How can I stop this from running?

    Check /etc/crontab as well as /var/cron/* as it could be in another one

    Why wouldn't APF work with a VPS? I use both APF and BFD (Brute Force Detection) on my VPS and they work great. Did you start APF after you installed it?

    On the subject of APF, any reason why it would say it cant get the ethernet card info?

    I would also recommend installing BFD (Brute Force Detector) which can help automate the apf -d task when it detectes multiple failed logins from the same IP. I also have it e-mail me with all the info about the attack. It's written by the same developer who wrote APF.

    capnqwest,

    Read the thread.
    He was uninstalling it.

    Can we get a rule/some sort of punishment against this type of spam?
