Post date: December 16, 2005, 22:12 Category: Network Views: 3445 Comments
Tutorial quote: There are times when you have to allow arbitary incoming connections, when you are travelling for example.

In this situation you can create a collection of firewalling rules which will deny access from remote clients who attempt to connect "too many" times.
