hi : I have a question in regard to Flood Protection Thresholds under Zone Protection. Do the thresholds for Alert/Activate/Maximum apply to counting SYN packets directed at a partuicular host or to counting SYN packets directed at all the hosts in the protected zone.
The online documentatio specifies "destination" which implies a particular IP while the the Zore Protection Guide specifies "destination zone" which implies something else.
hi : The reason I asked my question was that I thought that SYN flood protection was for individual hosts like web servers rather than protection for a zone. If I set alert/activate/maximum thresholds at 10000/10000/40000 and if these numbers apply to the total number of SYN Flood packets sent to a zone/sec then it does not help me if my web server goes belly up after 9000 SYN flood packets/sec. Thanks.
