The variable PASSWORD_ATTEMPTS, like the variables DEFAULT_USER and ACCESS_FILE, affects AcuServer access security.

PASSWORD_ATTEMPTS holds a positive integer value specifying the total number of password validation attempts a requester is allowed before a connection attempt is terminated. The default value is 3. If a value of less than 1 is given, the value one (1) is used. If a non-integer value is given, the default value (3) is used.
