Hi

please tell us what's your problem and not your solution :-)
in other words, what are you aiming to?

I am trying to hinder our students from hacking/guessing each others account passwords. Some of them have shell access for file transfer.

alternatively, you could think to install fail2ban (http://wiki.contribs.org/Fail2ban)

I might try that, if there is no solution for Autoblock.
Thanks!

You could also use ssh public key authentication, and disable password logins.  But Fail2ban sounds like what you're looking for.
