    i get msg in syslog every 5 minutes like:
    pure-ftpd: (?@::1) [INFO] New connection from ::1
    dovecot: pop3-login: Disconnected (no auth attempts in 0 secs): user=<>, rip=::1, lip=::1, secured, session=<placeholder>
    dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected (disconnected before auth was ready, waited 0 secs): user=<>, rip=::1, lip=::1, secured, session=<placeholder>
    postfix/smtpd[25005]: connect from localhost[::1]
    Am i right that this is the service up check from ispconfig?
    Is it possible to change that to 127.0.01 (IPv4) ?

    I ask because i get errors in fail2ban log:
    fail2ban.filter : WARNING Unable to find a corresponding IP address for ::1: [Errno -9] Address family for hostname not supported
    i am a little bit nerdy and i want to get clean logfiles o_O

    The check is on localhost, so it is a ipv4 check. Just most service stoday report this as ::1. If you want to see a different IP for localhost in the log file, then change your /etc/hosts file and disable ipv6 at all.

    Fail2ban does not support ipv6 yet.
