There's a certain IP on one of my servers that tends to attract alot of unwanted attention from "hackers" and script-kiddies in general. (It being a Counter-Strike server really explains most of the attacks). After receiving some information from the person who controls the server, the attacks don't appear to be slowing down. What I need to do is prepare to quickly nullroute the IP, should another attack take place (And believe me, these attacks are brutal.) How would I go about doing this? Is it something that can be done on the server itself, or would I need to have the NOC do it?
Why not just move to a host that has ddos filtering? after a while most hosts will just tell you to get lost.

I'd rather not change hosts, as I love everything about my current host (Discounts, a great staff and great prices ). And it doesn't get to be much of a problem, but I've noticed that it's getting more intense. So, as part of a contingency plan, I'd like to have some way to cut off the connections to that specific IP, without interrupting the services running on the other IPs.
