I've been using bruteblock a lot recently for stopping bruteforce attacks on sshd. Regexp patterns are nice for custom items.

Porteasy to update and install ports.

porteasy (in ports-mgmt category)

-i can pull a port not having to have the entire ports tree in /usr/ports. You have ONLY the ports you install !

I like porteasy very much. Not much exaggeration to say it is a must have tool if the HDD space is precious.

Btw, a CVS server is needed when running porteasy, Im just wondering what is happenning to CVS servers in US and Japan? I always struggle to connect to them :S
