Yeah great article, never knew one could make one's own router! It's a shame about 99.9% of that stuff goes way over my head lol.

Additionally, APF includes brute-force and DoS protection which can be enabled/disabled in the config file. Of course, this is free software. I've used it for many years and it makes handling IP Tables far easier.
