Do you guys really offer good fw protection?
what if someone were to synflood you? could you guys take that? stand up?
(im against dos attacks btw)
i'm just asking.. becuase i've had my servers dos'ed before, and let me tell ya, it isn't fun.
its quite lame.
because from what i hear httpd (foonet) or whatever, has really good firewalling.. so if you were to say.... have a box/server behind their firewall
i hear you wont really be able to bring it down
but then again i don't know.
i used to run a few ircds off some of my ded. servers -- for a small network, nothing bad, just a small community.
next thing you know, we are getting dos'ed every minute.
eventually i had to take the ircds down.
no matter what ip i would put in the dns pool
it would get packeted, it was lame and i dont konw why it was happening either
so then i thought about getting a ded server @ Foonet or www.httpd.net.
but then i figured
what if i waste $150 or $200 on it
and find out it still goes down
so i decided to get a ircd shell account
from jeah.net -- they have servers @ httpd.net
behind their firewalls
so i setup ircd on this shell
everythings goin good...
Guess what happens? We get dos'ed
So what does jeah do?
Instead of say. "blocking" them
They NULL route the ip and call it a day.
That's it... I got to use my ircd shell account for 5 hours
so im thinking what the hell? Is this how jeah.net handles dos attacks, or is this how foonet (httpd) handles em
so then i thought
Wow, if i would of got a dedicated server with foonet..... they would of probably null routed the ip instead of blocking it
which does nothing for me you get what im saying?
If i'm going to get a server with a host who claims to have fw protection
The last thign i need them to do is null route my ip
Which i could do myself on the server itself
So what do you think? I just want you to know, that this little irc network i ran, it was nothing bad, we didnt cause any trouble, I still dont understand why we would get hit, but it happend, and it caused me to close the dns down.
If i were to colo, or get a ded server (if you guys do that) -- Would you guys just NULL route the ip if the server was getting hit/attacked, or would you actually try to block it, and let that ip, and the ports open on that, stay alive, stay going.. or what?
