    I found in WHM firewall this:

    Temporary Blocks: IP:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx Port: Dir:inout TTL:14400 (lfd - (cpanel)
    Failed cPanel login from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (RS/Serbia/ptxxxxx203-139.ptx.xs): 5 in the last 300 secs)
    ..Done.


    Ok, it says 300sec.
    Is 300 sec is waiting period for auto unlocking or 300 sec is period of time when failures has been?
    If not, how I can know when ip address auto unblock in minutes? :confused:

    That comes from ConfigServer Firewall (CSF+LFD), and it is not part of cPanel/WHM.
    You really should ask questions regarding CSF+LFD in their support forum:
    ConfigServer Scripts Community Forum • Index page

    "5 in the last 300 secs" means that there was 5 failed logins in 300 seconds from that IP, and it will be blocked for 14400 seconds (4 hours).

    In CSF configuration you have:
    LF_CPANEL = 5

    That means that if there are 5 login failures in LF_INTERVAL seconds the IP will be blocked.

    You have:
    LF_INTERVAL = 300

    If LF_CPANEL_PERM = 1 then the IP is blocked permanently,
    if LF_CPANEL_PERM > 1 then the IP is blocked for fo LF_CPANEL_PERM seconds.

    What does this mean

    If LF_CPANEL_PERM = 1 then the IP is blocked permanently,

    LF_CPANEL_PERM = Default: 1 [0-604800] what if give different number from default 1 to 10 ??

    You really would benefit a great deal by reading the actual comments in the Firewall configuration settings. Find this area:
    Login Failure Blocking and Alerts
