Ever since I updated to Ubuntu 8.04, I cannot get Fail2Ban to work. I have removed it and re-installed it but still no luck. I am using a jail.local as opposed to just the jail.conf. I followed the debian how-to here on howtoforge. Here is my jail.local: Code: # Fail2Ban configuration file. # # This file was composed for Debian systems from the original one # provided now under /usr/share/doc/fail2ban/examples/jail.conf # for additional examples. # # To avoid merges during upgrades DO NOT MODIFY THIS FILE # and rather provide your changes in /etc/fail2ban/jail.local # # Author: Yaroslav O. Halchenko <[email protected][email protected] The logs look normal, beside the fact that it won't pick up hack-in attempts (all that i have seen so far is ssh) Any help is much appreciated.
