Default Can't remove SSH firewall rule.

I recently had someone try to get access in through SSH with a random password generator. I was going to try to disable or remove it simply because I don't use the service on my server at all.

However, I get an error message " This port cannot be altered."

Is this the way it's supposed to be?

What exactly did you change or execute when you receive this message?

Well I'm simply using the ISPConfig admin panel to change the deactivate this port.

As far as changes go I simply used the ISPConfig Ubuntu Edgy perfect setup. On top of that I added Zabbix. That is all. From what I can see though Zabbix shouldn't be preventing me from blocking my SSH port.

You can not disable SSH in the ISPConfig firewall. Thats a security function to stop poele from locking theirself out of the server. If you dont need SSH at all, just stop the SSH service.
