    Exclamation protect wowza from attacks

    Hi,

    I've a wowza server that sometimes (once a week) is attacked by one ip that opens about 200 cuppertino connections at the same time.
    The ip is a dinamic xdsl ip, so I can simply block the ip on the firewall.
    I'd like to know if there is a way to instruct wowza to limit the number of connections for a single ip.

    Or, do you have any ideas how to block that kind of attacks?

    thanks

    Luca,

    You can look at a HTTP client IP address and block the session like this:

    Here is a black list example, added to the pre-built Wowza Module Collection:
