• Help with "recent" match

    From buck@110:110/2002 to All on Sat Sep 21 20:29:42 2013
    Can anyone please suggest some working values for seconds and hitcount for iptables' "recent" match?

    Does the protocol matter? In other words, does SSH need different values
    from SMTP or FTP?

    How did you arrive at the values you use? Is there a better way than the recent match to limit incoming connections?

    It depends on what you want to achieve with the "recent" match.
