I have several questions regarding hardware firewalls for servers.

1. Is there a hardware firewall that can be put inside a server case, for example if I had a 3U server chassis/case and wanted to fit a hardware firewall inside instead of renting another 1U space at the colocation center. Is this even possible? Is there such a brand of firewall that would fit inside of a case. And be connected in such a way to the server like for example a PCI card, etc. This might even be construed as a ridiculous question so please dont laugh :D Thanks

2. What is the best firewall to protect a dedicated server from a DDOS attack. Does not matter if it is an external firewall or one that would perhaps fit inside of a case ( if there is such a thing).

3. What is the best way to stop a DDOS attack? ( This may not be necessarily a hardware question)

Not that I know of. I suppose you could disassemble an existing firewall and try to stuff the components into a larger case, but that sounds like a lot of work and any warranty would of course be voided.

I normally recommend SonicWall firewalls. No firewall I know of can protect you from a DDOS attack, but some have tools to detect and analyze them. SonicWall has a White Paper on denial of service attacks that you can read here: ftp://ftp.sonicwall.com/pub/info/Denial ... ttacks.pdf

You can't really stop them from happening, but there are ways to handle them.
