"IP" has been banned from SFTP, ignoring connection attempt

OS Name/Version: Windows 11 - 22H3

Product Name/Version: AMP

Problem Description: “IP” has been banned from SFTP, ignoring connection attempt…

How to unblock?

Steps to reproduce:

  • Step 1 - Setup SFTP
  • Step 2 - Try and join
  • Step 3 - Watch your IP instantly get blocked

Actions taken to resolve so far:
Yes User has role to join via SFTP
Yes I’ve used WinSCP and FileZilla, IP is banned, cannot join at all, instant block
Yes I’ve tried tired on a different PC, it insta Blocks IP
Yes Ports are open

What is the name of your user? If you’ve used one of the honeypot usernames then it’ll get insta-banned.

thanks for the hand, and just for curiosity, how would one disabled honeypot mode if that’s even possible?


However we strongly recommend that you do not do this as you will likely be inundated and have your logs filled with bad requests, and instead just don’t use the usernames that are part of the honeypot list.
