1 minute login error requirement

I was curious to know if there is anyway to configure a linux login such that if you attempt to login with an incorrect username/passsword then you will be unable to attempt to login for some duration of time (say, 60 seconds). I'm thinking telnet/ftp here...

Thank you,

It is a different syntax depending on what package and service you are using. Check out the documentation on the ftp package that you are using. I'm pretty sure all ftp packages allow you to specify what you want in their conf files.

Also, and you probably saw this coming, DON'T USE TELNET!
It is very insecure. Look into ssh. Much much better.
