5 Login Attempt/15 Minute Bug

by jev 6 replies
Allen/Programmers,

There's a problem with the limited login attempt system. If you use up all your login attempts, it will tell you to wait 15 minutes. Even if you wait 15 minutes, and try to login in again it will still tell you to wait 15 minutes.

    I did the same thing, but waited more than 15 minutes and it worked. If you waited 14.89 minutes it might reset and not let you in. Try waiting a bit longer and see what happens. Its the servers view of 15 minutes that counts.

    I wrote this because I couldn't login. I still can't. I had to use a proxy server. Every time I come to the WF and try to login, (outside the proxy) it tells me I have exceeded my limit.

    I did reset my password, hence how I could get in on the proxy. However, it just won't let the issue go without the use of the proxy.

      I had to reset my password and it all worked after playing with it for about 25 minutes.

        Yes, now I could login without using the proxy server. That 15 minutes after being locked out feels like an eternity. I guess if you keep trying to login if it hasn't been 15 minutes, you have to wait another full 15 minutes.
