Default Hardening ISPConfig 3 Server

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to harden the server?

I want to make sure that I have it secure. I know the we installed fail2ban, but it is not configured for the server applications. I have asked multiple times for a how-to or something to get it setup with the default installation, but nothing has ever been done.

Is there anyone that has it that would be willing to share it?

His questions are about fail2ban and not ispconfig itself.

Take a look at the fail2ban wiki, there you will find a lot of examples for varoius services.

e.g. pure-ftpd:

Postfix:

I have got some things working in fail2ban,

Are there any suggestions to make it more secure? Just want to make sure it is good to go so that I can roll it out to clients.

Thanks.
