Except throttle block

The except throttle block allows you to specify an IP mask that will not be affected by set::anti-flood::connect-flood (the throttling system).

Note that connection throttling is an important security measure. It provides primary and secondary protection against DoS, flood and brute force attacks, both for handshake and fully registered connections. If you exempt connections from this then you severely degrade these protections. You should only do so for IP's you trust.


except throttle {
	mask <ipmask>;

The except::mask specifies an IP mask that will not be banned because of throttling.


except throttle {
	mask 192.168.1.*;

except throttle {
	mask { 192.168.*; 10.*; 127.*; }
