wrong login attempt limits

I am running RH 7.3 & when logging into it via ssh i get up to 8 attempts before it disconnects me. I would like to know how to lower this to say 3. I have attempted to do this with /etc/login.defs but it is still giving me 8 chances.

Does anyone what i am missing

Many Thanks
