I have a problem with my Apache webserver where there's and IP than connecting to my server, using a lot of connection and wont die which eventually making my webserver timeout. The connection will stay as SYN_SENT state if I check using
I even flush my iptables and use the basic rules and it still doesn't work. The IP will get connected when I start my Apache
Basic rules that I use:
iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT ! -i lo -d 127.0.0.0/8 -j REJECT
iptables -A INPUT -s 126.96.36.199 -j REJECT
iptables -A OUTPUT -s 188.8.131.52 -j REJECT
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT iptables -A OUTPUT -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -m icmp --icmp-type 8 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -j REJECT iptables -A FORWARD -j REJECT
The bold part is rule in question.
Not sure this is related but tcp_syncookies value is 1.
Can someone point out my mistake? Is there a way to block it for good.
