Thanks for the information, I didn't have the time to read the whole
thread but managed to do the first 20 ones. As I understanded T?rk
Telekom only has servers from Europa in its routers, whilst
ntp.jorijn.com is located in the northern of America. Currently the
firewall is still in its default settings which is a limit of 10 new UDP
connections per second. This with a burst rate of 60.
As normally I will monitor the system for any strange activity again. If
so I'll compare the hosts and check from which subnet they are.
If find out they are all unique, or totally random it would be a matter
of changing the security of my server.
Kind regards, Jorijn.
