My CSGO Server is blocking incoming connections. Some people are able to connect to it while others can't. I am one of the unfortunate few who are unable to connect.
The server does not lag, running on 102 ticks.
This shows up in the console.
IP rate limit sustained 252321 distributed packets at 8410.7 pps (0 buckets).
Sometimes it would be 30k pps.
It will follow up saying connections from <ipaddress> is blocked, and the ipaddresses are from all over the world, leading me to believe that it is a DDOS attack.
However, why would that prevent legitimate connections?
1. Is it a DDOS attack? If it is, what can I do to prevent it?
2. Why are some people unable to connect to the server while others are able to?
3. How do I solve this issue?
