The Auth object does not natively support logging of unsuccessful attempts, but you can still do it, by adding your own code:
 
Add the following in fw_enter.prg:

* Instantiate AuthState as a ppublic variable, so that it's

* available to fw_exit.prg after the requested script exits

PUBLIC  AuthState

M.AuthState = 0

 
Add the following to all pages that call Auth.Authenticate:

.

.

M.AuthState = 1

* This is your existing call to Auth.Authenticate 

Auth.Authenticate()

* The following line does not get executed in the case of

* authentication failure.

M.AuthState = 2

.

.

 
Add the following to fw_exit.prg:

IF M.AuthState = 1

* We have had an unsuccessful login attempt

.

. Add code that logs the event

.

ENDIF

 
Unfortunately, FoxWeb removes the secUserID and secPassword fields from the Request.Form list at the beginning of the request (before it passes control to fw_enter.prg), so you will not be able to log the invalid credentials, but you will at least be able to log other stuff, such as the originating IP address.

I realize that I can do that - and I do in every script except the auth.AuthForm. I would like to log unauthorized attempts to log in to my website.
 
How can I do that?

You can log requests on your own -- either by adding code in fw_enter.prg, or in specific scripts that you are interested in.  The logging info can be stored in a text file, or a table.  This script logs a bit too much info, but it can serve as an example.

 Is there a way to log login attempts?
 
I frequently have users claim that they've been trying to login and can't. I can see when they've been to every part of my website, except when they get to Auth.Authenticate.
