Max retry

I think the max retry value should be turn down to 3 or 4 as the majority of the attacks are 4 consecutives attempts.

Problem with Installation

When proceeding as indicated, with the intention to use the messages-file and not the iptables, I arrive at

Turn on Fail2Ban
To start Fail2Ban type the following as root:
/etc/init.d/fail2ban start

There is however no such file in the folder /init.d/. It seems also that the file names have been changed. Under /usr/src/fail2ban/ there are various fail2ban-files, like fail2ban-client, fail2ban-regex, fail2ban-server etc.

Could someone here please update this Wiki. Thank you.
