Apache for Windows and dosevasive

Hey guys and gals.

Iv recenlty come under attack a few times a week via a simple DoS attack.  When it occurs, its the same ip (a proxy) over and over.

As a temp solutions iv just been adding the ip to the "deny from" directive.  It seems to stop the attack, untill the atacker finds a new proxy to use.

I sure its one of my competitors (id like to know who  ;-0 )

I have heard of 'dosevasive' for linux.  Is there a version for windows ?


Is there a firwall suite i can buy (specific name plz) that will automatically work with Apache (monitor port 80) and ban all that hammer requests ?

Thanks, Andrew

I would not care myself if its only one proxy IP. It can not create alot of usage of apache.(and bandwidth)

As for general solution i suggest you to make a script that will log incomming ips to database and if you get like more than 200(or any predefined value) requests per hour then block that IP for 24 hours. Everyday you can cleen logged ips to make sure your database remain small and fast.
