So I'm using Fail2ban and the way it bans and unbans IP addresses is by using the
ufw deny from xx.xx.xx.xx to any and
allow. However, because new rules need to stay on the top of the list (above the allow any any), I can't seem to reallow access without manually doing a
ufw status numbered and deleting the original rule.
Is there any way that I can do something like
ufw allow from x.x.x.x to any and automatically remove any existing "deny" rules? Otherwise, I'm not sure how fail2ban can ever remove an IP ban with ufw once it has already been placed.
