    executing: sudo sshguard -w 138.n.n.n which then hangs forever ... then CTRL+C

    returns: /usr/libexec/sshg-fw: line 57: read error: 0: Success

    excecuting /usr/libexec/sshg-fw -w 138.n.n.n has the same result.

    checking in the script sshf-fw, it hasn't got a whitlisting function - I haven't downloaded the source code to check further.

    What's the full command-line you're using to execute SSHGuard, starting with sudo sshguard -w 138.n.n.n?

    If you don't give it a log file to read, it'll be expecting logs to come in over standard input.

    • changed status to open

    This looks like issue #56 and was fixed in ba09cf4. Does this error only occur when exiting SSHGuard? Does adding exit to your sshg-fw script fix the issue?

  5. Addi Abel

    I checked ba09cf4 ...

    the part in the version 1.7.1 looks like this:

    fw_fin() { : }

    fw_init if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then echo "Could not initialize firewall" >&2 exit 1 fi

    cleanup() { trap "" EXIT fw_fin }

  6. Kevin Zheng

    It's missing a call to "exit" in cleanup(). If you add "exit" to the last line before the end of cleanup() does the issue go away?
