I would love to know, If there is a way to mitigate DDos/Dos attacks on Windows. In Linux we can Mitigate using the almighty iptables, but I wonder if there an equivalent for Windows.

  • @Stephane Need some references, I asked already If we can do this with Netsh Firewall, but no answer – Ammar Brohi Jan 21 '15 at 16:09
  • Mitigating DDoS? Not really, but for mitigating DoS - absolutely. Do it the same way as with iptables. – Rory Alsop Aug 18 '16 at 13:55

Considering you already know IPTables, which is software mitigation, you could do the same thing in Windows by simply scanning the DNS requests and block IPs in the firewall.

It's important to understand that this won't help if your hardware fails under the load. You might get a better answer at ServerFault.

  • Yes I know blocking requests will work, but actually how.. Thats what I am asking – Ammar Brohi Jan 21 '15 at 16:08
