Fail2ban Recidive Incremental Ban Time Feature

NethServer 7.8.2003
Fail2ban Module.
I was so happy to see the Recidive - ‘Incremental Ban Time’ Feature implemented in the current NS 7.8 … However when I turn on this feature to try it, my recidive Jail function stopped to work … I get an error message :

fail2ban [22665]: ERROR NOK: (‘recidive’,)
Sorry but the jail ‘recidive’ does not exist

I tried restarting the fail2ban module, did not make a difference… restoring back to STATIC BAN TIME … recidive jail works fine. Am I missing something in the configuration ? Thanks in advance

My Current fail2ban version


Recidive is disabled with incremental bantime, no way to have both enabled

Thanks for the quick reply… Is there an option to set how fast the incremental interval and the maximunBanTime …? Also can I adjust which Jail Filter Not to be included in this Incremental Ban Interval…or is it ALL of Nothing ?

Appreciate the new feature…Thank you for the good work…
.Will Try it out

The incremental ban time is for all jails like the recidive does. It is a full replacement.

Appreciate your response and hard work… I had a chance to read the nethserver-fail2ban comments and templates in GitHub… gave me some idea about the changes… Very Nice indeed. Thank you.
