Thanks to whomever finally got through, however you did it. I had actually
allowed one host to start responding, and it had gotten to the part I
always least understand, i.e. the tries for root's password. I mean,
really, are there that many hosts out there with root accounts that can be
guessed with an automated password guesser? Anyway, it suddenly stopped,
and stopped attempting the other machine(s) as well. Whew.

Thanks again.

There are two ways, my friend, that you can be rich in life.
One is to make a lot of money and the other is to have few needs.
