Blackhole after DDOS. Need to disable.
I have a droplet running a game server (Counter-Strike 1.6) and it is experiencing frequent DDOS attacks that lead to Digital Ocean automatically blackholing the droplet and makes it off-network for hours before it can be accessed again.
I have tried a few combinations of ip-tables, however, I haven’t been able to stop the attacks.
I understand that this is done as a proactive step to make sure other droplets in the datacenter are not compromised, however this is a huge inconvenience.
Is there a way blackholing can be stopped for this droplet?
The DDOS attack lasts about a few minutes, however, the droplet goes off-network for hours which makes the server down for hours.
