    Hi, I wanted to enforce longer passwords on a site as well as a few other things that BruteProtect doesn't do. I thought I'd try WordFence out. I think I found what might be called a "compatibility" issue and am wondering how best to use them together. I woke up this morning to find a a particular IP from a particular hostname in Russia had been blocked by WordFence over and over again (25+ email notices). It must have just kept trying even after being blocked. It just kept trying to login to one site on my multisite, using the username of just a single quote mark " (or none at all, not sure what WordFence is saying.

    Anyway, it appears to me that WordFence repeatedly blocks them after X number of failed attempts, preventing BruteProtect from being able to identify it as an attack. I kinda think BruteProtect eventually nailed this person (or bot), but I'd like to get a clearer picture of how best to setup WordFence to allow BruteProtect to do it's thing, which would protect all my sites (and all sites running BruteProtect) from further attacks.

    I also wouldn't mind seeing some WordFence features (like enforcing stronger passwords, security scans, etc) come to BruteProtect, so that perhaps we didn't need a 2nd security plugin. I understand some of those things may be coming soon. I'm interested to see, but would like to get WordFence configured better in the meantime.

    My English is not very good, but I think I understand what you're trying to say. Thanks for the help
