I have SSHD running on port 5800 on some machine. (It is a my machine at home.) If I run this manually in a terminal:
# ssh someIP -p 5800
The connection is lost because I am disconnected after 3 consecutive mistakes. OK.
Now I do a brute force with hydra on this port with ssh as specified service and password root. It seems to run and tries passwords, but now I wonder why I am not disconnected this way. Is this because hydra instantiates a new connection for every new password, closes it after trying the password, and opens a new connection again for the next password attempt?
