The answer 2 and 3 which is which ever level is triggered first. The IP detection is dodgy sometimes, so it is usually the account which kicks in first

Closing - WONTFIX no bug in report

Hi pooh_
1 - because it tests if the value is set, 0 = unset
2 and 3 - will look for you

Admin option, sorry that will have to wait for HEAD - new feature.

Hi lcdumais,

That is why it is an config option, for people using phpGW to store important information, 3 is the desired value. Feel free to change the value on your install.

Admin -> Site configuration;

You can set Max # of bad logins before IP gets blocked and
you can set max # of bad logins before Account gets blocked.

- If both set to zero the default back to 3. Why?
- Which setting has priority? cause the lowest# of attemps always wins right?
- If block account is set to lowest # of attemps, this results in ip blocking and the account is not deactivated!

An admin panel to directly unblock the IP and account would be preferable, cause now you have to delete the phpgw_access_log manually.
That's no fun when you're not at the console (and don't have other means of accessing the db directly)
