Hi Bernd,

I could be totally wrong, but imho internally there is not much (besides
name resolution I guess and regexp for HOST) is tightened toward IPv4.
since all what fail2ban  does is monitoring log files and running
external commands, as long as those support ipv6 we should be fine. Do
you foresee any other (besides mentioned above) complications?

I am forwarding this bug also to upstream author, since this issue might
interest him as well ;-)
