Have: clear installed HestiaCP.
I can: add my own white IP address and work with CP (and SSH) only from this IP.
My Q: I have 3 white IP - how I can add more IP’s at white list of firewall?
What I have done: create new list with Russian’s IP, add it to firewall and work well (don’t work from others country’s IP). But I whant to create own list with my IP and work with HCP only from my IP.
Personaly, I don’t whitelist any of my ips and didnt got locked out. A whitelist for specific ips would not prevent you to get locked out from fail2ban, there you already pointed him to the right way over ignoreip in fail2ban. Also the questions would be: Why do you need to whitelist? Why do you get banned? Why do you need to whitelist over xx ips? Personaly, if I would need to whitelist a static ip, I would either whitelist our own /22 IP subnet, or a “jump in” gateway/vps if you don’t have any static ips available.
Hestia is and will always be a solution for sysadmins. The main reason to start the fork was because we all used vesta for our own infra. Then, as we all know, vesta got insecure, the communication about exploits and hacked own infra was not really existent - so Hestia was born .
If you arent happy with the way it is handled, @eris pointed you already to the way, that you can fork hestia and adjust it to your own needs. @Lupu wrote you detailed why it is like it is and we will not change this behaviour.
I think that the debate is sterile since you have very strong convictions that the limit should be 10.
As you know, I am not going to fork a good project for a small disagreement of criteria. I want Hestia to be better and that’s why I insist somentimes in the path I think is best. But that’s only my opinion.
