IP Lockout + Load Balancer?

I saw the new IP Lockout feature, which is wonderful! Thank you for adding it!

Before enabling this feature though, I wanted to check to make sure it would still work properly with a load balancer in place. We don’t want to have our load balancer IP blacklisted instead of the attacker. Are there checks in place to prevent this from happening?

    Hi John Venable,

    I hope you are well today.

    Unless your load balance request repeatedly to a 404 URL, then I think it will be safe.

    But for the most safe, please add your LB IPs to whitelist list, which you can find in IP Lockouts->Blacklist, scroll down to whitelist section.

    If you have any additional issues, please let us know and we’ll be happy to help.

    Best regards,


Thank NAME, for their help.
