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.
Regards:
Abhishek

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