config report + fail2ban daemon log


I've installed this contrib on a fresh sme-server 9.2 install, no customization
(just the script to list fail2ban activity).
After some days and check my iptables log, I notice that some ip should be
banned but it doesn't ; to test, I've put my "Orange LiveBox modem" in dmz mode
(same as bridge mode) and sme-server in "gateway-public" but fail2ban does

File "default jail.conf" was empty (just [DEFAULT] line) then I expand template
(not custom) to fill it as shown on contrib web page but this does not solve
the issue.

There are many log from /var/log/fail2ban/daemon.log which is attached with
these lines :
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/fail2ban/server/", line 696,
in getFailures
    has_content =
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/fail2ban/server/", line 802,
in open
    self.__handler = open(self.__filename, 'rb')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/log/secure'
