I'm sure you all know what Cloudflare is (it's a very famous CDN).
What I want to do, is force my Apache HTTP server to ONLY answer to Cloudflare. I want Apache to ignore and close or not respond to any incoming socket that doesn't match a list of IPs. (in the Apache cor level, before reaching PHP etc)
I need this to protect my website from DoS/DDoS incase someone got my real webserver's IP.
I have this guy that creates like 1200 TCP connexions to my webserver, and these connexions don't send anything, they just stay open and alive, which makes my webserver down for a while.
I'm a total newbie at Apache configuration etc, I need a step by step Instructions. I'm using Windows Server 2008.
