      There seems to be a bug in Webmin.
      There should be a message in /var/log/syslog when a logon failure occurs more then the maximum specified times in Authentication.
      When to checkbox 'Log blocked hosts, logins and authentication failures to syslog' is checked Webmin MUST report the banned IP in
      /var/log/syslog but this is NOT the case. A bug of Webmin in my option.

        Oeps: not a bug.
        The entries are in /var/log/auth.log
        Hmmm. Why call it syslog in the Authentication module???
        auth.log was a better name.
