I can't make it work for pure-ftpd, fail2ban is working for everything else, postfix, courier, ssh.. but ftp is not.
here's the message under fail2ban log when i try to logi via ftp.
2009-06-21 07:41:09,052 fail2ban.filter : WARNING Unable to find a corresponding IP address for ::1
it seems like fail2ban is not able to identify the ipaddress of the person trying to connect.. but when i go to system log, i see that pure-ftpd show a ipaddress of the person truing to connect..
What could be wrong?
