Thank you. Good to know, that IPv6 is finally coming. Without IPv6
protection, a lot servers are unprotected against IPv6 clients.

My tests were successful but I can't test with IPv6. Please let me
know if you see any issues. I plan to submit the package to factory
next week.
My home Internet provider also does not offer IPv6. My idea is to test
in LAN. Usually every IPv6 capable host in LAN gets a link-local address
in network fe80::/64. So you can try to test with a local IPv6 address
to access e.g. password protected Apache folders multiple times until
Fail2ban fires.

Unfortunately I can run this with IPv4, but IPv6 gives me an error. Ideas?
