How long is the AMT "temporary lockout" when incorrect passwords are entered?

How long is the AMT "temporary lockout" when incorrect passwords are entered?

Trying to access a remote machine through port 16992; I don't have physical
to the machine at this point, and I'm getting:

"Log on failed. Incorrect user name or password, or user account temporarily locked."

How long does this temporary lockout last? I think I had one character
but I'm not sure now whether it's still wrong or it's failing because of the lockout.

I have not been able to find the answer to "How long does this temporary lockout last". Some have said that they think it is 15 minutes, but I have not been able to confirm this. I will keep looking.

Thanks, Paul

Login Backoff Mechanism after failed login attempts

Intel AMT prevents online attacks to the
Intel AMT systems by including a backoff

mechanism, triggered by a certain number of
successive failed login attempts. If an attacker

tries to login to the Intel AMT system by
guessing a password, and Intel AMT detects ten

successive login failures, further login
attempts are disallowed for a period of time. The

timeout period starts at 5 seconds and
reaches 80 seconds during continuous attack. After

one hour of no attack the backoff mechanism
is reset. This feature substantially impedes a

attack using password guessing.
