User keeps getting blocked by SSHGuard


One of our users keeps getting his machine blocked by SSHGuard after restarting their machine and opening VSCode.

Any ideas why this keeps happening?


Your user might be connecting from an IP that has an invalid reverse DNS configuration. I would check by using iptables -L -n -v sshguard if it’s a ipv4 IP address your user is using.

You have an /etc/sshguard/whitelist file where you could add your user’s IP, if it is a static one, to avoid the same problem in the future.
