Fail2Ban works fine with the built-in jails, but my custom OpenVPN jail doesn't ban anything, neither does my NGINX-DoS jail. The output of
sudo fail2ban-client status openvpn is:
Status for the jail: openvpn |- Filter | |- Currently failed: 0 | |- Total failed: 0 | `- File list: /var/log/openvpn.log - Actions |- Currently banned: 2 |- Total banned: 2 `- Banned IP list: 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199
I changed the IP addresses, BTW. So the jail is working, but the output of
iptables-save | grep 188.8.131.52 returns nothing, so the IP is not being blocked. All other jails work fine.

The same thing is happening with my NGINX jail, fail2ban-client says its banned, and I get an email saying an IP was banned, but nothing happens.
