Can't Access Magento Connect Manager

Can't Access Magento Connect Manager

I am trying to access the Magento Connect Manager and I can't get to it. I keep getting this: "Access is locked. Please try again in a few minutes." 

 

I was trying to see if there was an update to the POSIM Evo Linker because it isn't linking the items to Magento.

Update: Still can't get to the connect manager but that wasn't the cause of the failing linker.

Re: Can't Access Magento Connect Manager

Starting from Magento 1.9.3, there is new functionality introduced to prevent bruteforce attacks. If you go to your var directory, you'll notice var/brute-force.ini. 

 

Modify brute-force-bad-attempts-count value to 0, and you should be able to log in again. Also, it will probably reset by itself after lock time passes.

Yeah I guess the lock time expired, I was able to get into it this morning.

Re: Can't Access Magento Connect Manager

Great. I thought that it probably now works for you, because you've posted question yesterday.
