Fail2Ban in 8.0.4

Dear Community!

I have a Proxmox which is accessible through the Internet with Fail2Ban configured according to

The jail for https on 8006 does work! however, it doesn't show up in

fail2ban-regex /var/log/daemon.log /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/proxmox.conf

I have installed Fail2Ban on Proxmox 7 before and that command always used to show me the number of failregex.

I have since figured how to show failed attempts, but still unsure if I can leave the config as is.

(Bans for https on 8006 will show up with this command:)
fail2ban-client status | sed -n 's/,//g;s/.*Jail list://p' | xargs -n1 fail2ban-client status

Thanks for any advice!
