    When I enabled cPHulk Brute Force Protection and selected certain countries for whitelist and black list how much additional work does my server needs to do?

    To where does it have to check for every incoming IP to which country it belongs? Does it makes additional query to some other server or my server makes a local query in local database for IP/county matching? Where?

    Thanks for elaboration.

    I've seen that thread. It doesn't answer my question fully. Or did I missunderstood it?
