ok so im setting up a server for my school, orginally i had it running debian but was told it wasnt a proven dist. and was told to use mandrake.. although mandrake is extremely easy to setup i cant seem to figure out how to stop denial of service attacks, i tried finding it in webmin in the shorewall but no go. ( i had a another firewall app on debian that handled it for me)
well to the point, i got the server scaned by the school district so that it may be put outside of the schools network and be accesiable online, but was told the IT was able to pull off and crash my ftp with a service of denial attack and to patch that up and il be ready to go.
so could anyone tell me how i can do that in mandrake 9.1 fully updated?
Originally posted by linuxbotx Do you have the firewall setup?
yes i set it up using the mandrake firewall in control panel. but there is no option for denial of service attacks, ive used firestarter and it was very good but dont know if that'll work well with mandrakes firewall config. also i was told he was able to crash the ftp, so i only need to cover that.. however i only have 3 ports open httpd, ssh, and ftp so if i can cover all those from pings and all that good stuff i saw in firestarter that would be best.
ftp will be used to allow the several other school departments put up their own websites, or files. and i think ssh would be way to hard to explain.. and ftp is the next to simplist way of doing it. (i also have a upload script made by the programmer on my team but ftp is still needed just to be on the safe side)
so you really think ws_ftp is a better option? il go ahead and see if there is a update for proftp but i dont think so..
