Blocking Torrents and Connection Limiting

Here’s the sample lines for connection limiting, where br0 is the internal LAN:

# only allow 25 connections per host total, only 5
# of which can be above port 1024

/usr/sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -p tcp –syn –dport 1: -m connlimit –connlimit-above 25 -j REJECT
/usr/sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -p tcp –syn –dport 1024: -m connlimit –connlimit-above 5 -j REJECT
/usr/sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -p udp –dport 1: -m connlimit –connlimit-above 25 -j REJECT
/usr/sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -p udp –dport 1024: -m connlimit –connlimit-above 5 -j REJECT


/usr/sbin/iptables -A FORWARD -s -p tcp -m connlimit –connlimit-above 10 -j DROP
