Question

The VPS iptables records limit (numiptent) might affect the work of Plesk's Fail2Ban.

Hi, I had a situation with my previous Plesk install on VPS which could be the result of iptables records limit was exceeded. Can you please advise how can this get resolved to re-enable proper function of my fail2ban firewall?
