    In my default WHM server i have these ports open for incoming connections:

    20,21,22,25,53,80,110,143,443,465,587,993,995,2077,2078,2082,2083,2086,2087,2095,2096

    (output from Config Server Firewall)

    These ports are really not protected against DoS (not distributed) attacks of port flood?

    The CSF mentioned above has this setting:

    PORTFLOOD = 22;tcp;5;300,80;tcp;20;5

    As you can see im protecting 2 ports atm. Should i enhance this to all above mentioned ports? Can i set some flat value for all of them, like 100 connections in 5 second? What value you recommend so i protect all ports from port flood?
