Re: SSH forwarding
My active port 22 machines, were showing around 24000 attempts on root each 24 hour period, before I started to auto-ban them, they were at times crashing my NAT router...
Not as annoying as the FTP bots that tries hundreds/thousands of passwords each run, even when I allow their current username on any password (access granted) they disconnect and keep trying.
But I agree with @noclue unless you need to run on port 22, I advise picking a different port.
Port 443 works well, because network/traffic monitoring software is expecting encypted traffic on that port when you are travelling.
Yes, I am not employed and looking for IT work. Have passport, will travel.
