No rules log, unless you add the keyword them to, so overall the
solution would look something like this:

interface myif eth0
  client all accept
  server ssh accept

  server anystateless nolog drop
  # Logging happens implicitly for any packet that gets here in the
  # rules (none ever will now)


I used the anystateless service because it makes slightly less rules
in the generated table than "all" or "any" but it looks a little odd
because it demands an extra parameter to give it a name:
