OpenVPN setting max number of authentication retries



  • Hello community,

    I have a question about max number of authentication retries with invalid password. after max number of retries is reached, for example 5 times, i would like to lock user account indefinitely, until admin unlocks it.

    I can't find those settings.

    I have set cert/user/pass authentication and that works ok.

    I am wondering, if someone tries brute force on user's password, how to prevent that..

    Best regards,



  • I'd look at using Freeradius as external auth (Radius) server, if needing something like that
