I setup the webmin to block hosts after excessive login
failures. Is there a way to unblock a host before the
timeout period expires? I don't seem to be able to
find an answer on the webmin site nor via web search.

Thanks,

Mike H.

    I am in need of this information as well, so that when a
    user locks themselves out, I can go let them take another
    swing at it, without waiting the 999 minutes they would
    otherwise have to.

    Thanks.

    I just want to let you know that in 2009 still someone wants to have this information.

    Is it possible to unblock the blocked host by running a script? Just like you can reset the password of an administrator with a script?

    Thnx,
