Hello,

i have problem with an intruder trying to connect my server in SSH mode as Root ( Sorry for my english i'm french ).

I have a lot of connection with a chinese Ip ...

https://www.abuseipdb.com/report?ip=112.85.42.194

And i would like to know how to securise my homeserver from those Attacks.

I see there is a Proxmox Node Firewall but i don't how it's works .
The same from Fail2Ban i have installed it, but i don't know what i have to do with it.

My server Crashed this weekend, and if i launch any VM i have so much errors ata3.00 statut {DRDY ERR }
And when i look in proxmod syslog, i can see a lot of trying to connect

I really Need helps :)

Thanks a lot


Edit:

Hi,

Use fail2ban to secure your Server.
There are many tutorials about configuration Fail2Ban for SSH also in french.

About your disk, the syslog says you got an IO error with a media error.
I would say you have to replace it.
 
It's looks like a NUC this computer.
So i have only an SDD, Ram installed inside...

Should i have to do a clean installation, and try to install Fail2ban ?

Can I install Both : Fail2Ban and Pfsense ?

Are trying to said that my SSD ( Bought on January is dead ? )
 
  1. Install fail2ban (proxmox wiki)
  2. You have everything listed on the wiki page
  3. You can just copy and paste without even the need of knowing what you are doing (though if this is the case, don't host public servers yet and learn on local networks or with small deployments - my 2 cents on this)
  4. It will take you max 5minutes if you will just copy-paste stuff
  5. You really can not mess this up
  6. it will block access to requests from public IPs that have failed to authenticate 3 times in a row; the addresses will be banned for set amount of time
  7. READ THE DOCS!
Kind regards, Aljaz S.
 
Yes i've found a tutorial,
and i will test this tomorrow.

For those errors, does that means my ssd is dead ? Have i to contact my customer service ?
Or can i just format it all and make a fresh install ? ( All my VM are backed up )

I have another question, how can i do a backup for save Datacenter 1 Proxmox node ?
Can't find any tutorial for this problem. I can only backup up and restore all VM.

Would like to try To restore all VM, in conteners for a test, but i don't know if it's better.

I have
Plexmediaserver
Jeedom ( log for domotisation )
and i want :
Pfsense
Pihole
Seedbox
Server FTP

I'm sorry about all this question, i'm learning it and i want to try all i can try :)

Thanks a lot for all your response and sorry for my real poor english
 
For those errors, does that means my ssd is dead ?
Hard to say.
please check smart values
Code:
smartctl -aH /dev/sda

I have another question, how can i do a backup for save Datacenter 1 Proxmox node ?
There is no server backup function.
You can only backup the Guests and save them somewhere else.
But the most important information are in the /etc/pve directory.

It's ok for server backup fonction, it's not possible to add one on him ?
Or make a save like a "ghost", or "cloning" ?

Thanks a lot :)
