Fail2ban, ssh keys no ban action

Posted January 24, 2015 2.6k views

I’ve installed a VPS with a LEMP server, ssh with keys (no password) and fail2ban. But after setting the ssh keys and disable passwords, fail2ban won’t react anymore.

I’ve searched on the internet, but I couldn’t find anything that helps.

Can someone help me out?
