Limit Total Number fo Connections from Lan
I'm running the networking hardware for a Lan party in a month and am planning on using pfsense for routing. The network I'll be using for the network connection has a 2500 new connection per second per host. his means that if someone crosses this connection boundary it blocks everyone behind the router from creating new network connections. I am trying to limit the total number of connections per second for the entire network using pfsense.
I found the option for firewall rules concern connections per second and it seems to work (I think I passed the limit and it's currently blocking my test machine). My question is where is the list of hosts that hit this limit stored and how do I either shorten the punishment period or manually remove the entries?
Or I'm doing this in a less than optimal method and would appreciate some direction.
Thanks in advance.
Edit: I'm using version 1.2.3
