Fairly new to vmware and ESXi. I allowed port forwarding for a day or two so I could access my vsphere client from outside my LAN to do some things at work because I have a slow week. It kept locking out after every hour or so, which I would then have to reboot it in order to log back in. After checking the logs, there were 500 something failed attempts to log in. So the lockouts were due to brute force attacks on the login credentials I determined. However, after I disabled the port forwarding and rebooted my router, it continues to lockout. Any thoughts on this?
