OVH DDoS protection

  1. So I'm renting a Game Server from OVH which advertises DDoS protection, however, I do frequently get DDoS attacks despite that fact. I've made a support request with them, but they haven't replied yet. Is there anything else I have to do to get the DDoS protection working or is it just supposed to work from the beginning? I heard something about Firewalls or IPTables earlier, but I'm not sure how to set one up, so if anyone could point me in the direction of a good tutorial, it would be nice.

    BTW I'm using Linux.
  2. Well, yes. You have to setup your Firewall in the OVH control panel. You also can setup IPTables while SSHed into your OVH dedicated. As for a tutorial, do a simple google search.
