    Is there somewhere in Plesk that I can set the max login attempts. I can see in the logs there there is constantly multiple attempts to SSH in.

    It would be great if there was a way to deny a certain IP address if it fails to many login attempts.

    Is there something that would do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Check out APF Firewall; a much more configurable firewall than the Plesk module and it supports brute force detection/blocking. That's the feature you're looking for.
