Do you have thoughts on criteria for iptables... how do you differentiate between 800 healthy connections and 800 duff ones if both have an ESTABLISHED state? Do you just assume it will never be that much and limit accordingly or do you do time limit to say that connections should never be maintained longer than x minutes and require clients to re-establish connections?
