What do you mean with "restrict unauthorized attempts". Please explain a bit more, what yyou want to restrict. Login attempts, to which service? Attempts to access a service? Attempts to guess your password with dictionary attacks?

Hello,
Actually my problem is that my server attempts to access some other server and that is not intentionally. I want to restrict this type of attempts but don't know how.
I think that now you can understand my problem. If you have any suggestion then please let me know. Please sends the commands also.

Thank You.

If your server attempts to get access to other servers, you should scan your server for rootkits:
