Dear FreeBsd gurus, I have a problem concerning users password and authentication policies. The goal is
1)make freebsd to lock users after 3 unsuccessful login attempts,
2)force users to change their passwords every 90 days

I've done such changes in Linux distros, with various PAM modules.But in Freebsd it seems that i need to use login.conf file.

I think you want PAM in FreeBSD also. Check

Here I made necessary changes in that file:
.............      :login-retries=1:\

The fields which are reserved for password aging parameters are 0:0
test:$1$F9yf.PuK$xqIsGEgK3MexpPZ4UBav0.:1001:1001::0:0:User &:/home/test:/bin/sh

And the locking point does not work either, e.g. no matter how many times I input wrong password, I'm still able to login. :( I cannot understand what I'm doing wrong, and what should be done solve this issues? I'm not an expert Freebsd administration, so any comments and suggestions are welcome.
