Notes on Linux system configurations based on the personal documentation of my systems. They will hopefully be able to help out some people. It's my way of reciprocating for all those who took the time to post solutions that have helped me over the years.

Manually unban a fail2ban banned IP address
To manually unban an IP address that fail2ban has banned:
iptables -D fail2ban-ssh 1
Where fail2ban-ssh is the chain the IP is in and 1 is the position of the ip in the chain. Use iptables -L to gather this info.
