Multiple attempts at access SSH from unknown IP

Support won't handle such cases; those must be reported to Abuse.

A a suggestion, I'd recommend you to just ignore failed login attempts. You see, in a single month, having only 8 servers, I get more than 1.5 million failed logins in a month. Just make sure you have a strong password or some additional security, like two factor authentication or public key authentication. You can also try changing the SSH port from 22 to another one.

So,

for the last 3 days I have have constant attempts to access SSH from what seems to be in OVH ip. IP listed is 51.255.40.12

I've raised a support ticket but have had no response, is there any way for OVH to stop this IP from attempt to access the server that I pay for?

Seems OVH are happy enough for their own IP's to attempt to access another users server.
