DESCRIPTIONFail2Ban v0.9.4 reads log file that contains password failure report and bans the corresponding IP addresses using firewall rules.
Only use this command for debugging purpose. Start the server with fail2ban-client instead. The default behaviour is to start the server in background.
- start in background
- start in foreground
- -s <FILE>
- socket path
- -p <FILE>
- pidfile path
- force execution of the server (remove socket file)
- -h, --help
- display this help message
- -V, --version
- print the version
