Question Fail2Ban and OpenSuse 10.3


i have installed fail2ban like described in the howto Preventing Brute Force Attacks With Fail2ban On OpenSUSE 10.3.

The installation completed without errors or warnings. The only jail i configuered and acitvated is ssh-iptables.

Fail2Ban works and i receive eMails when it stops or starts.

In fail2ban.log is this comment: fail2ban.filter: WARNING Unable to find a corresponding IP address for

i tried several false logins with putty and ssh but no reaction.

Then i tried the same install on an other System with Suse 10.0 an everything works alright.

The only difference i found is the version of python. On Suse 10.3 is python-2.5.1-39.2 an on the Suse 10.0 is python-2.4.1-3.5

hope somebody could help...

Thanks, Libor
