Hello,

We have installed APF on the server. We are facing problem on the server. There are packet loss when we ping to the server. There about 10-20% packet loss when we ping to the server.

Anf when we stop the APF and iptables, there is no packet loss. We cannot stop the APF and iptables on the server.

So please suggest some solution for it.

Thanks.

thanks for suggesting CSF for the server.

But is there any other option that CSF to solve this. Because we are facing package lost while pinging to it. Means it can be a network issue. But i don't have more idea for the network issue. so please suggest me more ...

Both CSF and APF can optionally disable ping response for
increased security against certain DoS attacks and also
for a bit of increased system performance too.

If you want PING response, you can re-enable it in the
configuration files for either of these firewalls.

I personally recommend PING be left disabled!



EDIT: PS -- SAAVIS has a bad gateway in New York right now and anyone
having an internet connection passing through that bad point out on the
open internet in route to their final destination will see lost packets and severe
slowdowns that have nothing to do with the site where they are connecting.
