Port Sentry is it included in ISPConfig?
 
I have been debating whether to beef up security on my ISPConfig server.
I have the Fedora Core 4 Perfect setup. I also came accross Falko Timme's how to guide on Port Sentry, Log Check, and Chkrootkit.
I have already installed Chkrootkit from rkhunter and update it frequently and run scans about once a week. Do I need Port Sentry and Log Check to protect my server from hackers? I had to install Denyhosts since I had hackers from all over the world trying to hack my system through SSH.
I would appreciate it if anyone can give some feedback.:(

Portsentry is not included in ISPConfig.

You can add portsentry to protect your server and logcheck for monitoring, but most hacks today appear trough holes in php / perl scripts and old software releases. The best protection for your server is to update all packages frequently.
