Dear Support:

Now we used mqx4.1 with TCP/IP stack, and we encoutered a problem is that we use a tool to send some tcp packets to our device through the certain port like 80, and the device's normal tcp connection function will be unnormal, like the web server port 80 will not ok, after the tool stop sending the storm packets 2 minutes. the web server function will recover again.

 

What I want to know is that is it normal or we should do some change in the mqx tcp/ip source code to deal with the network storm attack?

 

BR,
