The temp IP lockouts are kept in memory. In our system, the time to get
locking out is 10 minutes. Long enough to discourage the bad guys, but
easy enough to tell the customer to go get a cup of coffee and try
again. I find they understand the need for the lock out and are
comfortable when they find out it's only 10 minutes long.
The threshold for that warning message is a system wide setting, not a
domain or user level warning. I found that I can count on one had the
number of accounts we have that exceed that, so it's easy enough to
