Has anyone (Personal proxy, RC5 client, OR full proxy) experienced any SYN
flooding? I know it was a problem experienced by the genx servers. I only ask
because I have a couple mysterious IP's in my proxy log and just recently got this
message from the OS. (I'm running Linux 2.0.30 with SYN cookies turned on)

I don't know how to investigate this further (at the moment) but I am
going to try and find out more. Perhaps future versions of the PERSONAL proxy
will have the ability to force e-mail credit. That is, give credit to a
particular e-mail addy no matter who sends the notification to the proxy. After
all it is a personal proxy. This way people wouldn't bother using my proxy...
they would either start their own or use the full proxies. In the least I would
like to be able to investigate what e-mails are traversing my proxy. That would
be a more friendly type solution.. (Perhaps an e-mail address that doesn't match
what's in the INI file would trigger a log entry?)
BTW: I guess you can add http://donr.hbp.com/ to the list of RC5 team home pages.

ACK! My sig file is infected with a SIG virus. :)
