UDP is a a connectionless protocol, so there are no "connections" to limit.
Thx for reply,
Yet I have clients who are using P2P parograms that when I monitor their connections through torch, I see a hundred plus sessions or packets or whatever they are simoultaneously. When I block the related client(s), the network is fast again for everyone else.
When I allow, then the network or at least Internet access gets real slow, ie almost similar to DoS, mostly affecting DNS requests on udp port 53. Queues don't help as the hundred above don't amount to 15kbps. So, it is not the packet size, but number of packets sent/sec or something else.
So, if udp doesn't work via connections, is it possible to limit the number of udp packets sent by a client through (Winbox) Firewall Filter Protocol udp(17) limit packet match rate? If yes, then what is an advisable setting?
Thx to whoever answers.
