1.2.1 Avoid localhost to be locked out

an easy way to achieve this result is to set “checked” the checkbox at the top left of the CRM Defender Settings page:
1.2.2 White List
You can be sure none of your most used IP addresses will be banned, putting them into the Whitelist text area: Please enter just one IP address in each line. There’s no need for separator such as commas or anything else.

To try the main functionality of the CRM Defender module, set the maximum number of failed attempts coming from the same IP address in a day before the defence system ban this IP. Insert an integer number in the text field: The maximum number you are allowed to input is 100. That is the same threshold you will get without entering any “Max number” just installing CRM Defender module.
