Question

What does this alert log 'Fail login attempt to ZyWALL from ssh (login on a lockout address)' mean?

The log message describes that some remote hosts have tried to login the device, but failed to login after 5 times, so the log will turn on.
You can use CLI command "show lockout-users" to check the lockout status.
