    i have installed debian 11 and latest version of ispconfig. During install i tried to install fail2ban. But in etc files is no file /etc/fail2ban/jail.local, there are just

    [email protected]:~# ls /etc/fail2ban/
    action.d       fail2ban.d  jail.conf  paths-arch.conf    paths-debian.conf
    fail2ban.conf  filter.d    jail.d     paths-common.conf  paths-opensuse.conf
    when i tried to add rules to file jail.conf,, fail2ban is failed. When i add to fail2ban.conf all works fine.

    Any idea why there is no file jail.local? Is this settings fine?

    That's a file that you create yourself when you configure jailkit, it overrides settings from jail.conf.
