Hello,

I'm running denyhosts on an Ubuntu Server. When denyhosts is started it blocks for several minutes until it is running. The problem with that is when the server machine is started denyhosts blocks the startup process for that time thus the server is not available.

I've attached my denyhosts configuration as well as the startup script.

My configuration:
denyhosts version: 2.6-5
OS: Linux server 2.6.31-22-generic #68-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 26 16:37:17 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Try chkconfig'ing Denyhosts off (or whatever the Ubuntu equivalent is to chkconfig):

    sudo chkconfig --levels 235 denyhosts off

    The next time you reboot, manually start denyhosts. Does it still take a long time to start up? If not, then perhaps another process is actually blocking.

    that should read:

    sudo chkconfig --level 235 denyhosts off

    notice the --level is not plural
