Subject: prevent dos attacks of standalone services

hi folks!

i was searching for a tool to do some per_ip_limitations
for services running in standalone mode.

not all daemons have internal support for limiting mass
connection attempts.

vsftpd coder chris evans now includes per_ip_limiting
in his latest release v1.1.2, while release v1.0.1 is
used within owl current.

for all other services not including such a featue i

the code looks clean and simple for me.

after getting more and more massconnects to services
like sshd in the past few weeks i wanted you all
to know about a tool like that.
