  • Resolved webtica


    Hi wfalaa,

    As followup of my post before :

    I checked it again and still after changing block time to 2 hours
    as you see in the screenshots it is still only blocked for 10 minutes.

    any ideas what i can do to fix this?
    and increase the time an ip is blocked?
    The IP’s that are LOCKED out are working fine and are blocked for the full time site.

    Here are some screenshots :

  • Webtica, another WF user here. You got my attention, I’m trying to find some WF blocks in my site admin based on Wordfence Security Network, but oddly enough I have none! I find this to be strange as my site does get attacked quite a bit. Now you’ve got me thinking that perhaps the 10 minute block you describe is fixed for all blocks based on the Wordfence Security Network, and any such block are timing out before I ever see them.

    Wfalaa, can you get us informed about this? Is the block duration timing adjustable for blocks triggered by Wordfence Security Network? Or is it fixed?

    Thanks, MTN

    Hi MTN ,

    I do check it from time to time on multiple site’s if the 10 minutes are over there are no blocked ip’s there maybe thats indeed the reason you don’t see any there.

    The Wordfence Security Network are blocked based on a list that is on our servers and the time that they are blocked is controlled here. If you’d like to block those for longer, enter a manual IP block for the IP address in question.
