Seems lately I've been enjoying somewhat frequent attacks on my mail
server. Some IP address opens up a thousand email connections on my
server, no idea why.
I firewall the IP address, but I still end up with a ton of connections
in a CLOSE_WAIT state. Is there any way to clear those all those
close-wait connections from the offending IP, without rebooting? If I
leave it sit they eventually all go away, I'd like a faster solution though.
