Hey, I think this software does exactly what I want. I´m going to give it a
try.

I like this kind of solution but I think this rules doesnt work. with them
the webserver does not respond to a single petition.

I have loaded this in my test computer:

iptables -N APACHE_CHECK
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -m state --state NEW -j APACHE_CHECK
iptables -A APACHE_CHECK -m state --state NEW -m recent --set --name APACHE

iptables -A APACHE_CHECK -m state --state NEW -m recent --update --seconds
60 --hitcount 4 --name APACHE

iptables -A APACHE_CHECK -m state --state NEW -m recent --rcheck --seconds
60 --hitcount 4 --name APACHE -j LOG

iptables -A APACHE_CHECK -m state --state NEW -m recent --rcheck --seconds
60 --hitcount 4 --name APACHE -j DROP

I have added the rule to log when the packets are dropped and it logs every
packet, what is wrong?


Thanks for your asnwer
