Best way to deny access to webgui after some failed logins

  • I am using pfsense 2.6 on a Proxmox VM

    I need some configuration that enables access denial after 3 failed logins from a user trying to login thru WAN.

    Which is the best way to do it?


  • That's done by default after 15 failed login attempts. That's not configurable.

    Still, you shouldn't leave the GUI (or any management interface of any sort on any device) open WAN-side, that's asking for trouble.
