[SOLVED] Limit pure-ftp signin attempts?

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I have an ftp server using pureftp. I noticed that the server gets hundred of attempts a day like this one: Code: Dec  2 23:25:14 ftp_server_name pure-ftpd: (?@ [INFO] New connection from Dec  2 23:25:19 ftp_server_name pure-ftpd: (?@ [WARNING] Authentication failed for user [Administrador] Dec  2 23:26:21 ftp_server_name pure-ftpd: last message repeated 4 times Is there a way that I can block the IP address that is attempting to sign in for a set amount of time if they fail to sign in X amount of times? Thanks, (Hardware)
