No i DONT want them to get in but what is getting em riled is the fact
that this line:
Jun 4 23:23:32 orion telnetd: refused connect from unknown
will repeat over and over and over and over for like 5 pages of logs.
Im getting extremely annoyed at this at first i thought it was a random
goof but then i sit down and look at 9 or more pages of logs with nothing
in them but the same line above for 9 pages something is going on no one
is dumb enough to keep trying and trying and trying to telnet in with no
luck. I get the same line everynight repeatedly.
I dont know if is hould be worried about this or not. I mean their NOT
getting in but they are constantly trying its driving me nuts.
Anyway to find out the soruce IP? I want to figure out how to get rid of
this person or automated something.
