Hi, first time posting here. I always do a deep research before asking questions but this issue seems like a no find.

Is there a way to find out which client in local network is using incorrect authentication when accessing the server? Lets assume 5 devices in total, mobile phones, tablets, laptops, are using the same email address behind the same wan address.

I only have this information.

May 13 00:05:29 cp dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected (auth failed, 3 attempts in 17 secs): user=<[email protected]******.rs>, method=PLAIN, rip=178.148.239.***, lip=178.**.204.**, TLS, session=<iKtdqHqlMLCylO/B>

Is it possible to capture packets, wireshark, or some other method to find this local ip (client device) using session or I'm lost and going in wrong direction?

I have a feeling there is an easier way to find this out and maybe I'm overthinking. Apart from going on site and checking all their devices.

Thank you in advance,
Marko

Or just ask them to visit one of a few hundred sites that gives them their IP address in the browser? We have one setup for our clients, but I don't want to spam the forum with the link.
