Good Day Friends;
I have been using the mail module and recently started using fail2ban. I was interested in a feature to permanently ban repeat offenders.
Recently i noticed that i have been getting frequent repetitive attacks from one particular IP Address. In order to block these i currently create a firewall group and block all traffic from this group. I then create a host for each offending IP and add it to that group.
It would be preferable to have an option to set jails to automatically drop/block any connections from offending IPs after a preset number of tries. It would also be nice to be able to manually add/remove IP from this list.
I must admit that i am not well versed with terminal commands and tend to prefer gui to get things done when i can.
Let me know what you all think.
