ipBlocker not working on version 1.4.7

Hi,

I enabled ipBlocker as I was getting repeated login attempts from a certain ip address. I set login attempts to 3 and a cooling off period of 10 hours. I also blocked the offending ip Address, but as you can see from this log entry it is not working.

    The ipBlocker only denies access to login. So theoretically you can block an real registered user as well. I have to look at it. Best open a ticket.

    If you really want to block visitors by IP from the server you better do that server side, e.g. using .htaccess. Then they don't reach the site/login form at all.
