Thanks for the reply,
On my fail2ban log inside of ispconfig, it keeps showing this error message:

....

....

Also, the instructions at the link you gave me does no include instruction how to add pureftpd in it, do you know what are the config lines I have to add for pureftpd?

in the instruction says to create new file named jail.local, my question is, will the system automatically load jail.local instead of jail.conf?
