Auto Block IP vs User Blocking

Post by garydean » Wed Apr 29, 2015 10:58 am

I have auto Blocking set to block forever all of the FTP probes that exist out there.

However I also want to manage users and disable them after a number of attempts.
What is happening is that a valid user with the incorrect password has their IP blocked and is also disabled.
How can I set the IP block to stop the probes and have valid login attempts just disable the user and not block their IP.

Do you have a best practice on this.

Set the IP blocking value to be a larger value than the disable after number of attempts value.
