    Protecting from Attacks?

    I run a server from my home internet connection which is on my local isp which monitors my bandwidth. now how do I protect my self from bandwidth sucking attacks that would get me a letter from my isp.
    The only open ports are 21 ,25 (I should close this one) , and 80 forwarded from my router. Its a linux server with Apache2.

    this would be a precautionary measure, its not happening but I would like to be prepared. I run a torrent site for xbox games. Just a listing site not a tracker.

    Dear Wildheart,
    Hello,

    If you are running this type of server on LAN then you may check this out !!

    http://www.ba.cnr.it/~paolo/pmacct/ with http://developer.berlios.de/projects/bwstats/

    This is just for monitoring if you want more and more secure then you can use pf but its based on BSD.

    FYI, http://m0n0.ch/wall/ , https://neon1.net/misc/firewall.html and http://www.unixcities.com/firewall-configuration/

    Best Regards.
