Create the file /etc/fail2ban/jail.local (the path may vary depending on the OS) and paste-in the following contents (which will override the defaults specified in /etc/fail2ban/jail.conf):


bantime = 3600
Any of the configuration directives may be overridden in this file.

Try consulting the fail2ban documentation next time . All of this is spelled-out very clearly.
