I have two filters that have banned local addresses. I have added the addresses to ignoreip but the damage was done already and the bans are in place. Every time I reboot my computer I have to do an
iptables -L f2b-apache-auth and then drop the two local addresses and again with the other filter.
I can't figure out where it is saving the bans and adding them back when I reboot. Is there a file stored somewhere where I can edit it and remove these addresses from those bans so they won't be added into iptables after every reboot?
And as a follow up question .. it is adding them in
iptables as computer's names not ip addresses ... in other words ... its showing as "computer name" not
192.168.x.xxx in the filter under the ignoreregex = I have added the ip addresses of the local machines that I want to not be effected... do I also have to add "computer name" to those entries also or would that cause the filter to fail?
