Does anyone know how to configure the firewall to block a set of IP ranges. I've downloaded some ranges from as I'm seeing

lots of people in China/Korea attempting a brute force attack on the ssh dameon.

I'm not sure if creating an /etc/hosts.deny file would work, there is the OpenBSD pf installed, but I don't think the default firewall uses that...
