  • IIS 8 : Configure FTP to prevent Brute-Force Attacks

    Please refer to the steps required to enable FTP login restrictions to prevent from brute-force attacks on windows server:

    1. Log in to Windows Server 2012 and open IIS Manager.
    2. Go to server name under the Connections and double-click FTP Logon Attempt Restrictions from features.



    3. Check box the option of FTP Logon Attempt Restrictions to Enable. Specify the "Maximum number of failed login attempts" and "Time period" so that the FTP service determines whether to block access for FTP clients.



    4. Click Apply.

    The above configuration will help to deny access to FTP service based on the settings of number of times that FTP client fails to authenticate within the specified time period.

    When the number of failed login attempts been reached, the server closes the FTP connection force fully and the IP address of the FTP client is blocked from accessing the FTP service for the duration of the timeout.

    Hope this will help you

    Regards,
