    @roly,

    I will check from my side and let you know.


    @shanky,

    1. It is Directadmin BFM which should be configured to detect attacks on wp-login.php. Check https://www.directadmin.com/features.php?id=1695


    2. Check:


    There will be a set of filter definitions (multiple definitions for each service) stored in:
    /usr/local/directadmin/data/templates/brute_filter.list


    where you can also create a custom version here:
    /usr/local/directadmin/data/templates/custom/brute_filter.list

    https://www.directadmin.com/features.php?id=1227

    So, it's possible.

    I did not find any issue on my end. What do you see in /var/log/directadmin/ when searching an IP which is expected to be blocked?

    Hi,

    My Client's IP has been blocked cause failure login (EMail).
    How do I white-list client's IP to avoid blocked ?

    Thank you...

    You could put the clients ip in the csf.ignore file.
    However, totally no checks will be done against that ip anymore. So if the clients machine will be infected with spam malware, they can have a ball.

    It's better to teach customers to write down their passwords. Because even whitelisted they won't be able to login with the correct password. I would never whitelist a customers ip, but that's your choice.
    Greetings, Richard.

    Alex,

    If you followed the guide in full and disabled CSF to check logs for brute-force attempts, it will be sufficient to add trusted IPs in a skip-list naively managed by Directadmin. You can find it on a BFM page at admin level in Directadmin.

    1. Connect DA as admin
    2. Go to Brute Force Monitor
    3. Find text area under a list of attacking IPs
    4. Specify your IP
    5. Click "Add to skip list"

    Thank you for your suggestion Richard.

    Yes I know the risk and I will teach the client as your suggestion
