    Hi, I had heard about a solution to Syn Floodind attack, but I'd
like to be sure about it so I could keep researching about these
solutions. I had heard that I could set up a filter in my router that
would wait for the second ACK packet after the SYN request and SYN-ACK
response before finish the whole connection with the server. Is it true?
