Locked Out on password change

Question

Received an email regarding security issue and took advise to implement additional security including changing my password, now I am not able to login. I know the password is correct, so I assume I am in trouble.

Is there any way out or will I have to start again and do a complete re-build?

 

Any

Try to login from another computer or change ip.

OK, I have done some research and have installed Putty, but unable to connect to the server. Have tried both host name and IP + port number 5000. but no joy, what am I doing wrong?

Default SSH port is 23, telnet is 22. Did you enable acsess to ssh/telnet in CP?

You need to tell us precisely what additional security features you added

Added firewall, and there was an option to restict too many logons from unknown IP's, also added a block  for 5 days on wrong password, so assume I have blocked myself.

You can try to log in from another PC through the GUI not through putty. The purpose is that since the IP you used initially is probably blocked you need to try to connect from another IP.

5 days block is too much in my opinion. Set it like this or similar:

This feature is basically aimed at bots that would try to brute force your credentials. You should not be too restrictive else it's the users that will suffer in case of block. Usually when a bot is prevented to continue attacking (blocked) it will stop and will move to the next target so no point in locking things too long or too tight.

Have tried a different PC and get the same result, connection refused.  Putty using port 23, have tried with host name and IP address

Agree, if I can get back on I will amend, makes sense.

Have also tried to logon on to my network on a different PC, and tried both my old password and the new one, and it rejects them both. Looks like my options are running out.

Just logged on using my phone using the music app, and it worked with my new password, but why not my other pc

And it was only the DS audio app that worked, not the DS cam or DS File. So strange.

So have now tried to logon my other pc, my mobile phone and android tablet and all state wrong account or password, only my phone using DS music app works.
