    i found this from the usenet:

    http://dominia.org/djao/limitipconn.html or mod_throttle

    if using iptables, what i can come up with is limit the number of new connection attempt per certain period (e.g. 5 new connection per minute) and that effectively "fool" the user into thinking that "oh, the server has noticed my activity... i should behave myself or get penalised......."

    good luck
