A host that blocks UDP upstream?
Hi, I am looking for a host that blocks UDP upstream. The only host I know of at this moment that does is Awknet. Are there any others? I am trying to search for a host.
Why do you need this? Maybe You were hit by a DDoS and think that by blocking UDP they can no longer DoS you?
Yes, I have been hit a few times and I need it blocked upstream.
There are many ways to DoS you without using UDP. You should probably look for DoS protected VPS.
Using carrier's filters to block certain Layer 3 traffic (eg. all UDP) is a solid strategy. Indeed, many attackers will see their way around this but generally speaking its a lot harder to launch a large TCP attack than a UDP. A combination of filtering UDP at the carrier and TCP locally could prove effective.
