    What exactly do the options mean? Whoever wrote this completely missed the mark when explaining/documenting the whole thing.

    Why aren't there any explanations that define Exactly what these options are?

    For instance, what is Brute Protection Period? This might have been obvious to whoever programmed it, but it is a complete Mystery to anyone who is coming upon it for the first time.....

    What does it mean to apply protection to local addresses only vs remote addresses.

    What are commands to run. Are there any samples/explanations?

    Why can one only block for ONE DAY? Why not a WEEK, Month, YEAR or INFINITY?
    Obviously if someone tries to hack the system 50 freaking times, you want to block them forever!

    WTH is this: Duration for Retaining Failed Logins (in minutes)
