I was thinking more along the lines of moving my sshd to a less known
port. I access it in a controlled fashion. So, having it on a standard
port is not (I think) a requirement for me. Then, our NAT could simply
drop the sshd port accesses on the well-known port.

After moving my ssh servers to a different port, I was able to
activate notification on break-in attempts again, so seldom happen
they now.

Strongly recommended,
