Denyhosts banned ip return after removal??

    Very strange.

    I tested my denyhosts settings. And it worked properly. It bans my ip and I'm unable to connect anymore.

    Now I deleted the line with my ip in hosts.deny and rebooted my server. And there it is.My ip is back in there.

    How is this possible. Do I need to delete something else too?

    This is caused by

    Code:
    ######################################################################
    #
    # AGE_RESET_VALID: Specifies the period of time between failed login
    # attempts that, when exceeded will result in the failed count for
    # this host to be reset to 0.  This value applies to login attempts
    # to all valid users (those within /etc/passwd) with the
    # exception of root.  If not defined, this count will never
    # be reset.
    #
    # See the comments in the PURGE_DENY section (above)
    # for details on specifying this value or for complete details
    # refer to:  http://denyhosts.sourceforge.net/faq.html#timespec
    #
    AGE_RESET_VALID=5d
