The return value is a JSON string. Example:

{"status":"Disable", "check_interval_seconds": 60,
          "max_failed_login_attempts": 60, "blocking_seconds": 600}


  • Each client allows {max_failed_login_attempts} logon attempts that fail due to incorrect passwords within {check_interval_seconds} seconds. If one more such attempt is conducted, the client must wait for {blocking_seconds} seconds before you can try again.

  • Valid values:

    • check_interval_seconds: 30 to 600. Unit: seconds.
    • max_failed_login_attempts: 10 to 5000. Unit: times.
