My IP was blocked again while I'm testing my directory permission with 2 userids . Please unblock it and advise: the site will block an ip after how many unsuccessful (consecutive or non-consecutive) attempts ?

If you make an attempt around I don’t know 3 or 5.

It isn't consecutive wrong passwords. You can't reset your ip by logging in successfully. Getting blocked is based on how many failed login attempts an ip has over a period of time. The exact number of failed attempts, and the period of time should remain secret though so people can't set up a bruteforce bot that stays right outside the limits.
