fail2ban

       authentication attempts.

DESCRIPTION
       Fail2Ban consists of a client, server and configuration files to  limit
       brute force authentication attempts.

       The  server  program  fail2ban-server is responsible for monitoring log
       files and issuing ban/unban commands.  It  gets  configured  through  a
       simple  protocol  by fail2ban-client, which can also read configuration
       files and issue corresponding configuration commands to the server.

       For details on the configuration of fail2ban see the jail.conf(5)  man-
       ual  page.   A  jail  (as  specified  in jail.conf) couples filters and
       actions definitions for any given list of files to get monitored.

       For details on the command-line  options  of  fail2ban-server  see  the
       fail2ban-server(1) manual page.

       For  details  on  the command-line options and commands for configuring
       the server via fail2ban-client see the fail2ban-client(1) manual page.

       For testing  regular  expressions  specified  in  a  filter  using  the
       fail2ban-regex  program  may be of use and its manual page is fail2ban-
       regex(1).
