Updating Reporting Server IP Address

Updating Reporting Server IP Address

Postby kenwood850 » 14. Nov 2017, 17:13

I assume that if the IP address of a reporting server changes, any further emails reporting attacks are discarded by blocklist.de until the server profile is updated to reflect the change of IP address. Is there any way of changing the IP address of the server without manually going to the web page, logging in, and changing it?

Disregard. While looking at the underlying source/html code of the server update web page with the thought of building a bash script to update date the IP address, I came across a note that indicated if the address was apt to change you should use fail2ban@dyn.blocklist.de instead of fail2ban@blocklist.de. That works for me. I will still update the IP address manually as needed but apparently none of the reporting emails will be dropped between the time of the change and the update.
