It seems that there is a lockout of the IP address of 1 hour after 5 failed login attempts to the Kerio VPN. I would like to up that number to 10.
Is there a place I can do that?

I wonder why this topic is not listed in the normal forum?

Here is the manual article for login guessing: http://manuals.gfi.com/en/kerio/control/content/security/pro tecting-users-against-password-guessing-attacks-1439.html

It says that the account will be locked after 10 failed attempts for 5 minutes. It doesn't appear configurable, but does match your request. Wink

The security log shows 5 bad password entries and then a block entry. Perhaps it does not log them all. Or perhaps it is cumulative over days.
...There are 4 more going back to June. Seems like a reset at some point would be a good idea.

I don't know how long he was locked out for but he did connect successfully about 50 minutes later.
He was locked out long enough to call his boss and then call me and I checked that all was fine before I looked for the lockout. So probably more than 5 minutes but I don't know.

I don't let weak passwords have VPN access so I know that users will mistype them every now and then. He said his caps lock was down.

Not a showstopper, but could be better.

Thanks for pointing me to the article.
