    cphulk 'Maximum Failures Per IP:'

    Hello,

    what is the recommended value for this option in cphulk?

    i have put 5, but i am thinking to increase it up to 10. because some users always messing up with thire password and asking for ip whitelist.

    Please advise.

    for your information, we also have below settings for other options.

    IP Based Brute Force Protection Period in minutes: 15
    Brute Force Protection Period in minutes: 15
    Maximum Failures By Account: 15
    Maximum Failures Per IP before IP is blocked for two week period: 10

    Sounds fine we have a similar setup only when we found out about the wordpress botnet amd kept it since. Just be prepared for a few "I'm banned or I can't log in cpanel and my site isn't loading" tickets .

    Thanks buddy for the comment.
