    I have BPS free and wonder if it is causing a login conflict to wordpress. I can login to the wordpress admin backend ok on my pc but when I try to login on my laptop it gets blocked. There are no error messages. Could this be BPS? On the security log on the pc it is listing login attempts at these times as blocked. Any idea how i can allow access from different IP addresses? any help appreciated.

    thanks for that. i have read about whitelisting but cant find info about how to do it.

    It sounds like you are using the IP address blocking Bonus Custom Code here > https://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/protect-login-page-from-brute-force-login-attacks/

    If you want to add additional IP addresses to your code then you would use the example method in the example code below.

    # Protect wp-login.php from Brute Force Login Attacks based on IP Address
    <FilesMatch "^(wp-login\.php)">
    Order Allow,Deny
    # Add your Public IP Address using 2 or 3 octets so that if/when
    # your IP address changes it will still be in your subnet range. If you
    # have a static IP address then use all 4 octets.
    # Examples: 2 octets: 65.100. 3 octets: 65.100.50. 4 octets: 65.100.50.1
    Allow from 65.100.50.
    # Additional whitelisted IP addresses
    Allow from 100.99.88.
    # Additional whitelisted IP addresses
    Allow from 200.100.99.
    </FilesMatch>
