I've never used it, but there is a "recent"
module for iptables. I believe it has the ability
to apply "if there have been x packets from this
host matching this rule in the last y seconds,
then drop the packet".
Visit http://www.magpiesnestpublishing.co.uk/ for books by acclaimed
author Gladys Hobson. Novels - poetry - short stories - ideal as
Christmas stocking fillers. Some available as e-books.
