17 Install fail2ban

This is optional but recommended, because the ISPConfig monitor tries to show the log:

apt-get install fail2ban

To make fail2ban monitor PureFTPd, SASL, and Courier, create the file /etc/fail2ban/jail.local:

vi /etc/fail2ban/jail.local

[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

Then create the following five filter files:

vi /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/pureftpd.conf

[Definition]
failregex = .*pure-ftpd: \(.*@<HOST>\) \[WARNING\] Authentication failed for user.*
ignoreregex =

vi /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/courierpop3.conf

#          host must be matched by a group named "host". The tag "<HOST>" can

#          (?:::f{4,6}:)?(?P<host>\S+)
# Values:  TEXT
#
failregex = pop3d: LOGIN FAILED.*ip=\[.*:<HOST>\]

ignoreregex =

ignoreregex =

Restart fail2ban afterwards:

/etc/init.d/fail2ban restart

 

18 Install SquirrelMail

To install the SquirrelMail webmail client, run

apt-get install squirrelmail

Then create the following symlink...

ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/ /var/www/webmail

... and configure SquirrelMail:

squirrelmail-configure

We must tell SquirrelMail that we are using Courier-IMAP/-POP3:

For fail2ban and SASL read Debian bug #507990, it's important:
