+1, yes this is what I experienced with initial tests... wishful thinking strikes back

Look at my answer - this is a standard thing, I am surprised you didn't get an answer that points to some intrusion detection system earlier.

Is not really right to say that it is used in DDoS attacks - this kind of effect is the goal of DDoS attacks. Doing it on the server/firewall, but only to attacking computers is the only real defense (AFAIK).

but you also want to do it automatically - no point in dealing with such issues on case by case basis. (see my answer)

comment Monitor linux and windows servers from windows
'not the linux one, as i'd be using Nagios' confuses me... also do you really need to run the server part on windows? with web fronted you can access it from whatever...

comment Improving Skype quality
@joeqwerty, wrong tree: the problem is that skype ignores its own settings; it has a setting for incoming port and proxy - for example if it was listening to me and if it went through proxy then I could easily shape on that (i can have a dedicated proxy for this purpose only), also if it was observing its own settings for incoming port then I could use that too; but it seems that it will only try these settings as a last resort (in cases where normal traffic would have been blocked).

comment Suggestions for VPN solution between backend servers
Don't they offer VLANs? That should have no impact on resources and stable. Alternatively, OpenVPN is definitively not complicated nor does it require a great deal of configuration to make it work.

comment Skip over intermediate server via SSH
@given established ssh to gate (with a tunnel to orig) you can use sshfs to mount some path on the orig machine; it's just a convenience replacement for scp in the second line if user needs to do more then copy one file
