[FAQ]Locking the Web Configuration Utility after Failed Login Attempts?
UC Software 5.5.0 added the ability to lock the Web Configuration Utility after Failed Login Attempts.
You can lock access to the Web Configuration Utility after a series of failed login attempts and configure a period of time a user can attempt to log in again.
Use the following parameters to configure additional security after multiple failed login attempts:
1 (default) - Enable the Web Configuration Login Lock feature.
0 - Disable the Web Configuration Login Lock feature.
60 seconds (default) - The period of time the user is locked out of the Web Configuration Utility. The user can try logging in again after this time.
60 - 300 seconds
5 (default) - After five failed login attempts, the user is locked out of the Web Configuration Utility.
3 - 20 - Specify the maximum number of failed login attempts after which the user is locked out of the Web Configuration Utility.
60 seconds (default) - After a user reaches the maximum failed login attempts within 60 seconds, the user is locked out of the Web Configuration Utility.
60 - 300 seconds - After a user reaches the maximum failed login attempts within this time duration, the user is locked out of the Web Configuration Utility. The user can try logging in again after the lock-out duration set by httpd.cfg.lockWebUI.lockOutDuration.
