# DenyHosts SERVER_SYNC alternative, ask for unscientific records

I'm safeguarding my ssh server with DenyHosts, and also determined to explore DenyHosts' arrangement to see to it points looked excellent. There is an alternative called SERVER_SYNC, that makes an xmlrpc call and also appears to crowdsource safeguarding an SSH server by utilizing denyhosts' main server to accumulate data concerning negative hosts.

I'm captivated by the suggestion, yet prior to making such a radical adjustment I needed to know, are other individuals utilizing this? If so, please write a little concerning your experience with the SYNC_SERVER alternative in DenyHosts and also any kind of concerns I need to expect. Many thanks.
