I have setup TFS 2010 to connect to the internet via our reverse proxy.  Now I would like to stop brute force attacks to ban ip addresses that keep trying to 'guess' passwords.  Is this an IIS change or a reverse proxy change?  If it is a IIS change what do I need to do to stop people from guess TFS passwords?

- USE complex passwords whenever possible.
- Always Use HTTPS for Published TFS implementations
-Block the offensive IPs using IIS
