Re[2]: SYN floods (was: does history repeat itself?)

FWIW, even with a thousand very busy modems, I'm pretty sure that even a
small cisco is up to the job. They just don't generate all that much


Could be, although I'd want to see this before I bet the farm on it.
I'm not sure how efficient crisco's filtering algorithm is...

I have found that 2500's do not have the processor for even basic filtering
when sitting in front of several hundred modems. 4700's on the other hand
(and 7200's) have the ability to handle the job with little difficulty.
