I recently upgraded my PC from F26 to F27, and noticed that fail2ban was not
adding the configured chains to iptables. This worked fine at F26.
Problem solved. F26 ran fail2ban version 0.9 (I think), and F27 runs version
0.10.0. At version 0.10 by default the chains are added only when something
needs to be blocked. To get the old behaviour of adding the chains when
fail2ban starts requires setting the 'actionstart_on_demand' action to false.
Details about this can be found at https://github.com/fail2ban/fail2ban/issues/
