As discussed on other threads and mentioned by Dicko fail2ban only keeps the banned IPs until the system is rebooted (or the iptables retain the blocked ip???!!!). Can we change the ban to block the IP address for good? can this be done with adding a few lines (where and how?)? If there are 100 attacks on the system in a day and the list is going to grow to 100*365 in a year, would that be a problem (such a long list to check until permission to login is given...)?
