Hi,

I would not like to hijack someones thread, but I presume that he has got the system working and therefore no further comments have been posted here.

I have exactly the same problem on Debian 6.
Code:
/etc/init.d/fail2ban restart
Restarting authentication failure monitor: fail2ban.
My /etc/fail2ban/jail.local file reads as follows:-
Code:
[pureftpd]

enabled  = true
port     = ftp
filter   = pureftpd
logpath  = /var/log/syslog
maxretry = 3


[sasl]

enabled  = true
port     = smtp
filter   = sasl
logpath  = /var/log/mail.log
maxretry = 5


[courierpop3]

enabled  = true
port     = pop3
filter   = courierpop3
logpath  = /var/log/mail.log
maxretry = 5


[courierpop3s]

enabled  = true
port     = pop3s
filter   = courierpop3s
logpath  = /var/log/mail.log
maxretry = 5


[courierimap]

enabled  = true
port     = imap2
filter   = courierimap
logpath  = /var/log/mail.log
maxretry = 5


[courierimaps]

enabled  = true
port     = imaps
filter   = courierimaps
logpath  = /var/log/mail.log
maxretry = 5
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Any errors in your logs (in the /var/log/ directory)?

The jail.local file in the how to has to be changed so the following line is:

Code:
filter   = pure-ftpd
Please make the change.

After that fail2ban starts successfully.
