Viewing / or opening the addresses that entered the black list in SSL-VPN

Greetings to you
Of course you know the command that defines how many failed attempts will be made to block the attacker's address,

 

 set login-attempt-limit

 

but I would like to be able to see these blacklisted addresses as well or unblock them if it's a friendly address
Is there such a possibility?
It can optimize our defense mechanisms

Hi @Arye_R ,

This command along with "set login-block-time " is usually used to prevent against brute force attacks.
Of course you can monitor this activity at Log & Report -> System Events -> VPN Events.

Perhaps you can view the blocked user/IP under the Dashboard -> Quarantine Monitor and take any action from there. I am not sure if there is any other place.

Regards!
If you have found a solution, please like and accept it to make it easily accessible for others.

Hi Arye_R,

 

As of now, there is no way to see SSL VPN blacklisted IP addresses and they will be unblocked automatically after they completed login-block-time as per your settings.

Hi @Arye_R 

In addition to the above posts, you can see the failed login attempts related logs via CLI if needed.

execute log filter category event
execute log filter field action ssl-login-fail
execute log display
