Nope, this sits on the machine with sshd installed itself, and activates
a pf block on that machine. M0n0wall doesn't have an sshd (see the FAQ)
so doesn't need the protection. Plus, for through-bound ssh traffic, it
has no way of knowing which ssh connections going through it are brute
force attempts, since they are encrypted.

automated auth tries, you will be happy with this script. It also
includes a simple rc script.
