http://serverfault.com – Why fail2ban 0.8 doesn't start properly on Debain 7 Wheezy x64? Hi, I'm trying to configure fail2ban to work with APF. But first, it would be great if fail2ban can start. root@akdom:/var/log# /etc/init.d/fail2ban start [ **ok** ] Starting authentication failure monitor: fail2ban. root@akdom:/var/log# /etc/init.d/fail2ban status [**FAIL**] Status of authentication failure monitor:[....] fail2ban is not running ... **failed**! root@akdom:/var/log# /etc/fail2ban/jail.local (Same content in jail.conf) [DEFAULT] ignoreip = 127.0.0.1/8 bantime = 600 maxretry = 3 findtime = 600 backend = au (HowTos)
