From your previous post... Quote " A DDoS attack is not aimed at a personal computer or device
Clearly you do not know how a DDoS attack works. Let me explain it to you....."
From your LATEST REPLY post. QUOTE "The DDOS attack was aimed at my connection, A SINGLE CONNECTION.
You honestly have no idea what you are saying, do you?
I guess when you suggest one thing, say another, or contradict yourself... I'm just blowing smoke.. either way.. you are just wasting bandwidth and by your own admission causing Rogers Customers to be affected by a DDOS because of YOUR actions.. to be honest Rogers should just kick you off the network..
Can we vote him/her off the island? lol
I guess it seems to me that all's fair in Love and Warcraft.
If your antogonist, the perpetrator of the DDOS attack on you, is known to you by IP address, or by other WoW-related info, it would seem to me that a more effective approach here would be to go to Blizzard support and address it with them.
I can understand that Rogers would be underwhelmed by the prospect of addressing any kind of digital vandalism addressed at one of their customers. Rogers really has no responsibility in this, nor are they an aggrieved party. What can they do? Go to the police, for example?
You on the other hand have, I assume, paid for WoW access and the rights to play the game unhindered by Yahoos who can't take losing gratefully. Blizzard will have at the minimum the option of disciplining their players by communicating with them, and at worst penalizing them by kicking them off the game, perhaps even levying financial penalties. I assume they (Blizzard) have the credit card info and/or other identifying info to pursue such a course of action.
Blizzard, on the other hand, would not want their game-playing customers pee-ed of by Yahoos like your antogonist and will no doubt need to be concerned about someone messing with their revenue source by making customers angry.
So, what say you? Have you tried any of that?
Good luck in Love and Warcraft.
I don't know specifically what Rogers can do, or would be willing to do. I do know that specifically, a given protocol such as ICMP could be blocked. I also know that firewalls can block specific protocols as well as specific connections from a given IP address. But that depends on the functionality available on that firewall, etc.
I apologize for making the assumption that you are a WoW player. Your name seemed to come up in postings related to that subject.
Some firewalls, for example those available under Linux, have very fine controls available for selecting, passing and blocking IP-based communications. However, I am no expert on exactly how to do that. I just know it can be done.
And, in the end, it doesn't matter which "tool" as you term it, generates the IP-based communications. Firewalls and routers simply look at the protocol, port or type of communication, and determine what to do based on rules set by the user.
