Question Configuring root login attempts for AuthFailed trigger


We are currently using VShell Version: 4.2.2 (build 1121) and are quite pleased with it's features and capabilities.

We currently block root login access using the configuration file directive:
DenyRoot true
We know this is working because we are seeing entries like this in the log files:
20161120 101942 VShell%20SSH2 auth 547 root 0 0 0 0 00547 Root login refused from

We want to continue blocking root logins and also:
  1. Use the DenyHostAfterFailure feature to add the offending IP address to the DenyHostsFile.
  2. Have root login attempts trigger the AuthFailed event.

What changes in the configuration file are required?
