I have just been hit by the same lockout while trying to help a family member. Their router needed rebooting so I just kept on trying to connect, not realising that I would get locked out for my sins. I have read the whole thread and I too am astonished by the lack of understanding by TV staff. We all realise the need to avoid Brute Force or DDoS attacks, but trying to use the TV client to connect to a non-responsive host can hardly be classed as either. I made 10 attempts over a period of 5 minutes - checking the log they were all logged as: CCreateClassicSession::HandleRequestRouteResponse(): Response: NOROUTE_LoggedOut@RouterIp Then of course it became: CCreateClassicSession::HandleRequestRouteResponse(): Response: NOROUTE_ExcessiveUse@RouterIp= May I remind you that your "hacking" protection was triggered by trying to connect to an unresponsive (off-line) host, no passwords were involved. Perhaps you could review your code so that initial connection failures do not count as Brute Force attacks?
