Default The Perfect Server fail2ban problem

I can't seem to get fail2ban to start up. I don't know if it is a jailkit issue or a fail2ban issue (or me being stupid issue), but this is the only part of the guide I am having trouble with.

sudo /etc/init.d/fail2ban restart
Restarting authentication failure monitor: fail2ban failed!

Here is the fail2ban.log file

2011-12-18 10:13:57,033 fail2ban.server : INFO Changed logging target to /var/log/fail2ban.log for Fail2ban v0.8.4-SVN

Thanks for any help
