Re: On the other hand... (thinking more after submitting)

said by Cabal:

100 SYN packets per second to the same address is what most engineers would consider a SYN flood. Knocking it down is a good thing.
Doesn't Windows XP in most cases (post-SP2 anyway) have a limit of 10 half-open SYN sessions?

So, in reality, the only people this would affect, is the people who have hacked out that limitation ... which is almost guaranteed to be Johnny Bittorrent and his uber leet buddies who think setting uTorrent to 6000 sessions means faster downloads?
