Swag fail2ban nginx-aunauthorized jail blocks Overseerr logins via plex

I have Overseerr (the latest sctx/overseerr container) reverse proxied behind the swag container.

For the longest time, I couldn’t get logging in via plex to work. I recently made use fo the SWAG dashboard plugin and noticed that the nginx-unauthorized jail bans my device trying to login.

Right now I have the jail commented out, but I feel like my system is less secure because of this and I would like to know if there is a better way I can configure this.

Has anyone run into this before? The closest I could find is this thread: How to deal with new "unauthorized" fail2ban jail in SWAG

But I don’t see any resolution in there that applies to my situation.

My other google searches have yielded very few results, making me think I must have configured something incorrectly.

Thank you for reading this and I appreciate any input

you should inspect your log files and verify why fail2ban is banning you.
take a look at the fail2ban-regex command, as well.

indeed those threads have no “solution”, but I still urge you to understand what is causing the ban, and either change your find time and count, whitelist your IP, or simply disable the ban.
