    Hi Knappen:

    This topic is covered in the “I just got hit with 500 failed logins! Why isn’t this plugin working?!?” section of the FAQ: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/login-security-solution/faq/

    Hey there!

    Thanks for responding. The FAQs are helpful and I did read them before posting. In addition, I put a question mark on the subject because I am trying to understand why a single IP address is getting through one attempt about every 40 seconds. Is the plugin logging and slowing failed attempts via IP or session?

    Thanks!

    As mentioned in the description, the plugin tracks IP, user name and password. If any of those three match earlier failed logins, we slow them down.

    Hey thanks! I had a 60 second delay stuck in my head but I reread that the second level delays can be 25 seconds. Reading- who knew?
