I know 🙂 I'm just explaining my reasoning 🙂
So, how does heatshield drop the connection if I'm spamming your IP?
Ehh, that's for Heatshield themself to answer 😄
I was just reading the site...
So there's an agent running on your server which is playing with IPTables
Yes, there is
Although "playing" is a bit a large word 😄
That was the missing piece. I couldn't understand how it would work if it wasn't seeing any of the actual traffic. It's not acting as a proxy, but as an externally managed, dynamic rule set for iptables
Yeah, there's the agent talking to the service and the actual firewall and proxying the data and applying it as needed 🙂
