unfortunately, my system is located in North America, and the product creating this log (Axway SecureTransport) is incapable of outputting the date in other formats.  I'm stuck with a hodge-podge of date formats on this system.

Re: [Fail2ban-users] Possible bug in fail2ban-regex?


                Can't you check the locale to determine the proper date/time
format?  US formats are all MM-DD-YYYY.  European might be DD-MM-YYYY
although I'm not sure which locales support that setting.  Either
way, it should be possible to determine the proper format rather than
guessing by looking at the current time.

Just a thought.
