I use swatch - http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Protect_SSHD_with_Swatch 
Instead of adding the rules to a dedicated swatch chain, I insert mine into the INPUT chain and I have my logs check for invalid users.  If an unknown username tries to access the server, a rule is auto inserted to DROP all packets from that IP address and I get an email on it.  If a valid username but an invalid password is tried, I get an email on it.

does anyone know if i can block individual ip's easily?
am getting this in my logcheck
