Fail2Ban not really banning


I have Fail2Ban configured through the sysadmin module to block for 15 days and send me an email for each block event. Since doing so i’ve gotten a notification that it’s blocked the same IP about every 3.5 minutes since activating it.

The core observation is that when going back to Fail2Ban in the FreePBX GUI, it shows “No Banned IP’s” and obviously if I continue to receive these block events it tells me the brute force is somehow ongoing.

Is your PBX up to date?

So it was up to date on V14, wasn’t quite ready to move to 15 but did anyway and it seems to have resolved the issue.
