An option to block permanently recurring black-listed ips

Tamsin shared this idea 7 years ago

We have a large number of unwarranted attempts to access our server daily and the current two week period is not very useful. We would welcome an option to permanently block these ips.

cPHulk, our brute force protection feature, blocks for 15 minutes by default, not two weeks. In addition it does provide a way to permanently block IP addresses. Which feature are you referring to?


Here it is. The current option available is to block ips for two weeks.

We want another option to block them permanently. It is impossible to

add every ip to the black list manually as we get so many attempts and

have no time, if that's what you are suggesting.
