Fail2ban jail.local configuration, how?

Posted August 3, 2017 9.7k views

Between these 2 tutorials

There’s a different on how to copy jail.conf to jail.local. Why on the first tutorial above I need to comment every part of it? This made me confused. That’s causing Fail2ban only works on SSH protection, or am I missing something?
