FMS will prevent this to some extent, largely due to how the FMS Admin Console and the FileMaker client are designed.But in order to get a bit more protection, I wanted to install Fail2Ban, an open source package that installs easily on Mac OSX, and scans your log files looking for suspicious activity.

This is what I have so far in my filters.d/filemaker-client file:
