The company I work for is looking for a cost effective solution to the
constant DDoS attacks that seem to be occuring on a frequent basis.
I have been charged with finding out if we can accomplish the following:
We want to set up a linux firewall with IPChains as the frontline defense
against these attacks to our web server. The web server will reside behind
the linux firewall on an OC48 connection, but needs to have external web
traffic for our website to be accessible.
I am familiar with setting up the Linux box with IPChains and configuring
the script when I was doing freelance consulting, but I have only done this
for a standalone network not running a web server.
Can some one lend some assistance on this? Or am I asking too much in this
