I tried clearing the cache and using different browsers, so I dont think it has to do with this
Also tried rolling the firewall back to earlier version (126.96.36.199 vs 188.8.131.52), no change
Tried upgrading to edge track (15.0.12). Same result.
On another server with a similar problem I saw something about a mention ofthe zulu jail in fail2ban. I tried running the commands I found in another thread that seem to have no affect. Also tried disabling zulu with no luck.
The fail2ban log is being written to but i dont see anyone being blocked
