Are failed logins logged?

Post by careycj0219 » Sun Sep 27, 2015 4:57 pm

Does zoneminder log failed logins anywhere, or is it possible to enable? I've searched around with no luck so far.

Yes this fix was added recently. It is not part of 1.28.1 but is part of development snapshots. It's a tiny patch to a php file. You can add it to 1.28.1 yourself.

That's just what I was looking for. I ended up expanding just a bit to also log the source ip address, since my goal was to use this with fail2ban.

$remoteAddr = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
Info( "Login successful for user \"$username\" from $remoteAddr" );
Warning( "Login denied for user \"$username\" from $remoteAddr" );

Everything is now working as expected.

Thanks!
