Hi Cyril! Nice to know you're OK. I was also following fail2ban.org's wiki, trying to see if you
were active... or alive, actually. I know you are military related, so, well, you never know.
I wrote a piece of software that reads /var/log/fail2ban.log, and reg-matches to obtain
Action/IP/Jail triplets. When it gets a match, it transmits that to other fail2ban-cluster agents on
other hosts (using authenticated http, preferably over a vpn or correctly firewalled ip), and these
other agents run fail2ban-client jail_name banip banned_ip. The banip command is a simple patch I
made and sent you. I linked it from your roadmap for 0.9.0 features page in the wiki.
I wrote this cause I have 3 servers around the world, providing the same 3 services to a set of
custoemrs (SMTP and DNS mainly). SO if I fail2ban in node1 discovers and blocks an attacker, I want
the other hosts to proactively block it.
I wrote it as an adhoc for fail2ban instead of a complete patch for it, as I hadn't been able to
contact you (I sent you an email with this idea before I even wrote a single line of code), and I
was not sure what your plans were, etc.
I'd be happy to contribute to fail2ban, cause I really like and use it a lot.
