I'm running CentOS 5 (RHEL 5 clone).
I'm trying to limit simultaneous connections on the http port to 10 connections per IP address at a time.
I'm trying to find a solution to do that without having to use unsupported software / recompiling kernel (to make future software updates the simplest possible).
Currently I found :
- kernel module connlimit for iptables : not compiled in the default kernel.
- kernel module iplimit for iptables : not compiled in the default kernel.
- apache module limitipconn : not supported, no compatible rpm available
I can't believe there is no easy solution for that;
Hope someone knows a good solution to do that with a retail Centos 5 :)
