In my drupal site, often i see this message for the admin account
Sorry, too many failed login attempts from your IP address. This IP address is temporarily blocked.
I know i can solve it clearing the 'flood' database table, and i'm almost sure it is caused by people or bot trying to login as admin. 'Almost' for in the table flood the failed attemps have identifier '1-127.0.0.1' that is the local ip and it sound strange to me... There is a way to avoid the problem for good? (and to be sure it is about people/bot trying to login and not something else?)
(I mean obviously a convenient way. Allowing all the login attemps without blocking them is not a solution.)
