This is both an answear and a question...
I use iptables on my firewall and internal server;
I allow no services on my firewall - I passthrough to an internal server;
I run tcpwrappers (via xinetd) for further port filtering;
I run portsentry to catch and mask out scanning hosts;
Q: is portsentry sill the best to use? are there any other port
scanning/DoS detecting software packages.
