Whitelisting

Whitelisting of a single host for, lets say, courier-auth is NOT possible! and thats very bad ... and the README / Howto to whitelisting is very poor - and thats even worse ...

I tried it with:

1) /etc/fail2ban/jail.conf:

[DEFAULT]

ignoreip = 127.0.0.1, 82.198.214.113

= no success

global_whitelist = /etc/fail2ban/whitelist.txt

= no success


2) /etc/fail2ban/jail.local:

[DEFAULT]

ignoreip = 127.0.0.1, 82.198.214.113

= no success

3) /etc/fail2ban/fai2ban.conf:

[Definition]

ignoreip = 127.0.0.1, 82.198.214.113

= no success

Finally, I tried to set a "ignoreip"-Line in /etc/filter.d/courierauth, but with no success :-(

As far as I can see, there is no simple solution to whitelist single hosts (or networks?).


At the moment, we have de-activated fai2ban on our mailserver.
