Team,

I have made a M-A-J-O-R firewall change to combat some of the spam. It's something that I've been working on with my other IT guy for my company and testing for 3+ weeks now and I've finally pulled the trigger on the network that runs TBT.

Everything should run faster faster too since I've thwarted some of the garbage that was sucking bandwidth.

Thanks!

Still having traffic sourcing/spam issues. I believe it's coming through the mail ports.

I've temporarily disabled outgoing mail from the firewall to troubleshoot.

PM's will work but email notifications will NOT until it's fixed.

Thanks!

As far as I'm concerned I don't need any more email notifications. Getting plenty now. :D

Thanks for hanging in there.

Still getting hammered with a DOS attack that I'm working on blocking.

Literally when the server is plugged into the network the entire network (and my internet connection) goes down.

I'm working remotely which makes matters worse because I have to talk my tech guy though how to work the problem as I cannot work remotely with the server unplugged from the network...

I'm still actively working on this issue. There WILL be downtime. Nothing I can do. Ready to commit suicide on this problem.
