Seem to be getting a lot of these questions lately which have no data in them about what is needed or wanted...

Until there is a question, I can only show you this:

            *There should be a DDOS or SYN flood attack wich opens embriyonic TCP connections. A firewall should solve it.

A firewall should solve this but there is also a Modified version or 3rd party patch to remove this imposed limit which you will have to search for, I cannot post it.

            What will happen when you remove this limit? Why is this limit set? If there is something reached this limit somehow, it is going to go higher when this limit is removed, which will end with an unresponsive client. Removing this limit is not suggested.

            Did you encounter the same problem and then used it? Or just tried. Creating security risks with removing limits and etc just for easier use is not a solution while you have to investigate why this issue occurs. How can you guarantee that this is not a typical Syn Flood attack of an 12 years old script kiddie, who is trying to daunt the user to disable his firewalls or remove the limits for himsel to access private information (credit cards etc)/data easier?
             You wouldn't have issues ofcourse untill you are attacked.

I have to tell you guys. I have no idea where this post came from. I did not submit this. It did not originate from myself. There is something else going on here. Not sure what but its spoofed either at experts exchange or from my network. I doubt my network because I don't see the motive here....

As a matter of fact at 9:40 am, i was at a natropathic doctors appointment. So the time of this is virtually impossible to originate from myself.

this is really making me nuts. Is there a way to find out where this post originated from. I'm begining to think that this may have originated somehow from one of my clients. After all I use this site a lot and have accessed it from every client I have at one point or another. I always save the login information. After all what damage can they do. This may somehow have originated from  one of them

Or Never ever save your passwords, period.
Also possibly check for a key logger.
Just some tips

I'm going to ask that this question just get deleted as there is nothing to resolve and I'm too busy to put any meaningless time into it. Thanks for all of the responses.
