I block SSH and put my static IP as trusted so I can SSH all I want and those overnight script scanner attacks only put a little load on my server drop’n the packets isntead of having failed login attempts.
I wouldn’t block NodeWorx though b/c thats a good backup. If your IP should change or…
if you get hit by a hurricane and the power is out for 5 days, but then hey, you get a generator and get that PC fired up only to find that the DSL is out and you have to use a dial-up backup account that will of course give you a totally different IP. If NodeWorx isn’t block then you can log into NodeWorx and unblock SSH login or add your new temporary dial-up IP :rolleyes:
I also block MySQL port since everything with MySQL is done locally.
