Advanced Blocking Settings
Starting from version 3-1-7 RdpGuard supports advanced blocking settings allowing you to customize how it should block attackers from accessing your server.
Prior to this release, all access to the server was blocked when the number of failed login attempts from a single ip address reached a set limit.
But in some cases you may need to block only particular ports, for example RDP, FTP, SMTP while leaving accessible other like HTTP/HTTPS.
