Brute force issue

how do

  1. ID 3 states a user from our GW being banded . this however causes a issue . how do or should I setup brute force to configured so it is seeing outside address and not reporting all addresses from outside the Lan as the GW address . which then causes everyone from outside to be banded …
    should I disable brute force and just install Fail2ban ?

Hi @RandyL I assume you are behind a proxy which causes the public IP’s to be translated to an internal IP address. I had the same problem. Use the steps in the message below which should resolve that issue.

StephanW thanks for the info .

question . apache24 using the setting you gave
ProxyVia On
ProxyPreserveHost On
RequestHeader set X-Forwarded-Proto ‘https’ env=HTTPS

I tried putting it at the end and beginning give me a error

Performing sanity check on apache24 configuration:
WARNING: number of probes fixed does not match the number of defined probes (12 != 13, respectively)
WARNING: some probes might not fire or your program might crash

Invalid command ‘ProxyVia’, perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

httpd log file which doesn’t seem to show the errors above.

Most likely the proxy module isn’t enabled.

Check which modules are enabled with:

a2query -m | grep proxy

and check if you can find:

proxy_http (enabled by site administrator)

If not then run the command:

a2enmod proxy_http

to enable it. Then retry.
