Re: ddos attack

From what I've experienced, the 192.x.x.x LAN IP seems to be a common attack vector regardless of the WAN IP. Perhaps it's because it's common? I'm not sure to be truthful.

I have noticed these hits are far less common on the 10.x.x.x internal IP's though.

You have no idea what you are talking about.

No one can reach 192.168.x.x from another network. That not what they are attacking, they are attacking the WAN IP which is provided by the ISP, changing the LAN IP does nothing. They cant hit the 192.168.x.x they cant hit the 10.x.x.x it no different.

No, changing your private non routable ip will make no difference. The 10.0.0.0 and 192.168 ips translate to the wan ip your ISP gives you.
