Not that I know of.

You might be able to see if these bad logins show up in the log.nsf file and set the debug level high enough to catch them.

Then monitor the log.nsf and act accordingly.

Also is this an event that can be captured via the Event monitor ?

I hope this helps !

Ok, but the log.nsf and domlog.nsf don't log the fail tries to login. I don't find an option to setup it, even the debug level.

Then I do not see any way of doing what you want.

In fact, until the user logs in, Notes, probably does not even know about the connection, so I would not think that this can be done, but someone else may have a solution.

You should try extending the "Mapping a Login Form" document in domcfg.nsf.  You would have to design a system within domcfg.nsf that tracks the number of consecutive login attempts, but it is possible.

Another option is writing your own DSAPI solution as well. I believe I have seen a 3. party solution somewhere but unable to find now.

Also sure I have heard this will be standard server functionality in version 8 OR 9.
