Firewall feature like iptables -m recent



  • I am not sure if there is some hidden functionality already in place but with all of the DDoS attacks out there I thought maybe this would be a good feature for the future.

    iptables has a -m recent module to control connections from IPs based on a time period. So if a source makes too many requests within a period it will block them.  Quite useful in resource exhaustion type attacks/DDoS.

    Just a thought.



  • If you look in the rule properties in the Advanced feature -> Advanced options section, I think you will find what you are looking for.

    Thanks a bunch podilarius. Been busy lately but I sure miss these forums and trying to help out when I can. Between the creators of pfSense and people like you supporting it, sure makes a great system.
