Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » log in attempts from own server IP (only)

  • Resolved BFred



    On one of my wordpress installs I only see login attempts from the server IP where WordPress is installed. Should I worry? (I am worrying…)

    Thank you

  • Hi BFred,
    I suggest making sure first that Wordfence can detect IPs correctly, this can be checked by following these steps:
    – Open your website link in a new browser window while not being logged in. (for example, Chrome incognito mode).
    – Then check your visit in “Live Traffic” log and make sure it shows your correct IP address.

    If you didn’t get your correct IP address, then you you will have to adjust “How does Wordfence get IPs” option.

    Let me know how it goes,

    Sorry had a busy new year weekend 😉

    So yes even when I log in Wordfence reports I am logging in from that server IP. So definitely an identification issue more than my server being the one attacking my website 🙂

    Thanks a lot for the quick response. I will look at the doc and try to adjust the settings accordingly.

    and best wishes for 2017!

    Thanks BFred for the update, I’ll mark this thread now as resolved, of course let me know if you still have any further question related to this issue.
