Is anyone using asterisk with fail2ban? I have it working except it takes way more break-in attempts than what is set in "maxretry" in jail.conf
For example, I get an email saying:
"The IP 199.204.45.19 has just been banned by Fail2Ban after 181 attempts against ASTERISK."

when "maxretry = 5" in jail.conf

I asked asterisk-users about this and they said:
"How often does fail2ban check the logs? It can only block that often, so if more attempts happen in that time period it can't do anything until it knows."
Perhaps someone else is experiencing this or has resolved it, thank you in advance for your time.
