Configuration Settings

Username-based Protection

Username-based protection tracks login attempts for user accounts. When disabled, cPHulk will not lock user accounts, but existing account locks will remain.

IP Address-based Protection

IP Address-based protection tracks login attempts from specific IP addresses. When disabled, cPHulk will not block IP addresses, but existing blocks will remain.

Warning: The command must complete within 15 seconds to avoid a timeout.

The following variables may be used in commands:

  • %exptime% - The Unix time when brute force protection will release the block
  • %max_allowed_failures% - Maximum allowed failures to trigger this type (excessive or non-excessive failures)
  • %current_failures% - Number of current failures
  • %excessive_failures% - 0 (not an excessive login failure) or 1 (an excessive login failure)
  • %reason% - The reason for the block
  • %remote_ip% - The blocked IP address
  • %authservice% - The last service to request authentication (for example, webmaild)
  • %user% - The last username to request authentication
  • %logintime% - The time of the request
  • %ip_version% - The IP version (4 or 6)
