Default Fail2ban not working

To see if iptables is running type:

service iptables status

You'll get a reasonably long output message showing what's being filtered.

If it is not running, you'll need to start it for fail2ban to work. If you're not running iptables, presumably you have another firewall that is protecting your box from evil hackers?
