I am currently using FreeNAS 0.7 for a file server. I have multiple SSH bruteforce attacks each week, and wish to use fail2ban to prevent this.
I don't have much experience with BSD, and am having trouble getting everything to work. I ran pkg_add -r python25 and pkg_add -r py25-fail2ban. I now have all the files for Fail2Ban, and did the cp jail.conf jail.local as the other distro's for linux use.
However, how do I start using fail2ban? I have configured it for CentOS and Ubuntu, and it starts in init.d. I don't know how to add it to /etc/rc.d to get it to work correctly..
Any help is greatly appreciated. If you need more info, please let me know.
