On a more.. pragmatic note..

And... I recall that there's a siteban that works through the unix box that works immediately and won't even allow any sort of connection. If you siteban the range of IP's that are spamming you.. it'll stop, because you can't create much spam through a shell account.
None of those suggestions will do anything against a script kiddie with a decent number of zombied boxes. By the time the storm of packets generated by a D[R]DoS hits your box, all of your bandwidth is gone. Unless you have a direct T-3 (possibly even an OC-3 for large stables of cable zombies that do a combo DDoS/DRDoS) drop from your provider or one of the backbones, you'll be choked off at the bottleneck between your upstream provider and your server. The only possible way to stop a D[R]DoS while it is in progress is to work with your upstream provider to have the packets filtered at their end (this is assuming that they have an OC-3+ drop, which is unlikely for MUD hosting sites).

In short, a firewall on your end isnt' gonna do jack sh*t. If a script kiddie starts a serious D[R]DoS against your MUD, kick back, read a book, and pity the sysadmin who handles the network upon which your MUD resides.

Disgruntled players don't start flame wars...

<span style='font-size:17pt;line-height:100%'>I DO!</span>

Well, I do and disgruntled admins who start flaming eachother on random internet forums. Kinda sad, isn't it?

Amnon says he didn't cheat,
Amnon said I cheated.

I say I didn't cheat,
I say Amnon cheated.

What a tangled web we weave. I can see this arguement is going places. With a lack of evidence on either side, I say we settle this like me...

Oh wait, I don't give two ****s either way.

I retract my accusatoins. Amnon doesn't cheat. Try his mud, you'll love it. =P If you don't, join the club.

What are you TALKING about?! I had TONS of evidence you cheated! Almost everything you do in the game that can be tagged as cheating is logged...

Before you go saying you don't get caught, think twice before cheating, cause you got busted.

Indeed.

Soljax, you are a riot.

I'm almost totally motivated into speeding up the coding of my own MUD so that I can open it exclusively to your enlightened playtesting.

In fact, would you like to beta-test it? If you do, I'd love you to bring along another player who can try it out a couple of months before you so that you have a goal to aspire to.

Please contact me asap. The MUD will be called HONEYPOT MUD, and if you're game, I'll make best efforts to open it sometimes in 2004.

Main IMP, head coder and administrator of HONEYPOT MUD
The 2nd BESTEST MUD in the whole global worldwide world - once it's finished!

And John, stop trying to be so smart.  


I'm gonna make good on my promise and stop squabbling about nothing.

Keep begging, Alistair. It makes me feel all smushy inside.

Jazuela loves it when men beg.

In that case, I beg your pardon, but my name is Alastair, not Alistair.

And that's all the begging you'll get for a while, so enjoy it.
