Using faillog


I followed this tutorial on setting up faillog for Ubuntu: http://blog.bodhizazen.net/linux/ubuntu-how-to-faillog/. When I login about 15 times with a bad password, it does not lock me out. It allows me to re-try. Is there something else I need to edit to have this running?

I would say -- that is a very OLD tutorial. Are you using an OLD version of ubuntu?

If you are not using an old version of ubuntu, i would suggest finding newer documentation on the effort.
