Hi there,
I have a VPS running with Directadmin but amount of system messages increasing daily reported that Brute-Force Attack attempt logging
However I would like to keep the original login page and I don't want to change to SSL :)
Are there anyway to stop Brute Force Attacks on my VPS?

Install firewall or you can automatically block ips by giving login attempt limit to 5 or so.

I believe that BFD utilizes a feature like this. I would actually highly recommend CSF Firewall, we use it on all of our servers, it is absolutely wonderful.

Yes, it is compatible with DirectAdmin.
