Hello All,

My Problem: I have some wannabe spammers/hackers bombarding my site with 10's of thousands of HTTP GETs

My Solution: I want to put in IPTABLES RATE limiting on port 80.

My Second Problem: This could potentially block valid high volume traffic, such as GOOGLEBOT, etc..

Solution: This is where I, and the entire webmaster world I bet, would love some help. Does anyone have experience with this and "tweaked" some settings that work?

How does one know what is blocked? Does it log it to see if legit traffic not getting through?

TIA,

Gman

Well no response, bummer. :)

I went ahead with a slightly different plan that seems to be working better than I expected.

Apache has a module called mod_evasive that will block DoS and DDoS and can communicate with firewalls/routers for futher actions.

This seems like a good way to go as an FYI to anyone finding this post.
