How to get BFD or Antidos to work on Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 --- Plesk 8?
Have been trying to get BFD and APF Antidos (not at same time) to work on Ubuntu 5.10 / Plesk and 6.06 (No Plesk yet) servers. APF appears to work fine after checking /sbin/iptables -L -n
Both cronjobs run but getting a lot of brute force attacks to ssh and Plesk but no offending IP's are being blocked and no e-mails reporting that they are being blocked. Log files for BFD and Antidos are always "0". Everything setup and configured the same as on my previous CentOS servers.
Can't find much on the net with this newer OS. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get one of these to work on the systems above? Thought it might be a path error referencing rc.d but put a symlink in for that and no change.
That might be it as I fogot Ubuntu handles log files a bit differently than CentOS. I scanned the log files and the entries that Antidos looks for are in /var/log/messages under CentOS but appear to be in /var/log/auth.log under Ubuntu.
So I changed this setting in /etc/apf/ad/conf.antidos
