Hi Scotty. I am sorry but you (when I say "you" I mean the whole TV support who have answered to this thread) keep running away from the main point brought up here by most of the users. I believe most people who have commented here will agree that WE UNDERSTAND the security need of this feature, HOWEVER, you cannot apply something like that WITHOUT warnings to the user. In ANY kind of system there will always be some kind of warning or notice that failure attemps will have a cost, and this cost NEEDS TO BE INFORMED. If you could at least: 1) Warn the user BEFORE IT HAPPENS that after "x" attemps it will get locked out; and/or 2) Inform the user HOW LONG WILL TAKE to get the connection restored If you would only apply those two things I am 100% sure that this thread (and others similar to it from my Google search about the issue) would be reduced drastically and less worry for you too. LET THE USER KNOW HOW IT WORKS in as much advance as possible, that's really simple. I am not even going into the details of DoS technical details (as I agree with other users that this has nothing to do really with DoS attacks), just implement that and I believe most people will be happy. I have a 12v paid license, and have been unable to help a staff of the company I am System Admin at because of that. PLEASE LISTEN TO YOU CUSTOMERS, that's all. Regards.
