Hello everyone. I want to make certain that I don't break anything in my current environment, so I figure I better ask before I try this.
I have been noticing a lot of failed login attempts from servers all over the world (Brasil, China, Korea, The Netherlands) and I know that fail2ban is the tool I need to stop these break-in attempts. How can I set it so it locks IP's out for longer than 10 minutes? What is the maximum amount of time I can lock someone out for? I'd like to set it to one week, but I'm not sure it's feasible.
Please give me some input here folks . . .
Thanks in advance!
