Reverse proxy vs brute force

I installed Hiawatha how reverse proxy, and I'm doing attacks of brute force, but Hiawatha not block. Please that you recommend me.

Stopping brute force attacks is not a generic thing. It depends on the kind of attack and how you want to stop them. By default, Hiawatha doesn't do anything against such attack. Read the manual to learn about the options it offers to stop such attack. Look at ReconnectDelay + ConnectionsPerIP, BanOnFlooding, BanOnWrongPassword and ChallengeClient in particular.

TKS Hugo, I used ReconnectDelay + ConnectionsPerIP.
