Sonicwall PRO 3060 SYN flood attacks

Threaded View
I work for a rural school system. Recently we have had problems with
our internet connections coming and going. Yesterday I noticed a new
error message on our sonicwall; Alert: SYN flood Attack. This alert is
only present when we are having problems. We are running our sonicwall
in stealth mode and already have the SYN flood protection enabled.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for any help you may
be able to give.

what exactly is happening,
is the box overloaded, how are the interfaces doing, what kind of connection to
your ISP, what bandwidth ?
how is the router doing, when this happens.
can you confirm the whole network behind the sw is affected, or just a host or
subnet/zone.

I see synfloods all the time, can't see how a 3060 could not handle them.
what else is in the logs when your connection goes down?
