I run a gameserver off of my residential internet connection (50/10). It's worked great for the last 8 months or so. Suddenly, I am getting complaints of extreme lag without any evidence of server problems. I am wondering if I am getting a DDOS attack, perhaps someone disgruntled from being banned from the server or something. I've had several threats sent my way with that sort of implication.
I've run speedtests, though I haven't had the opportunity to run one during a laggy period, and they come out fine. 15ms ping to the closest server, connection speeds are spot-on.
I use this router with DD-WRT: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320038
The incoming log table shows a lot (20-30) of incoming requests for ports 27733 and bootpc. Not sure whether those requests are related to the gameserver at all, though the actual game service does not utilize either of those ports as far as I am aware, and neither of them are opened in my NAT table.
What would be the easiest way to tell if someone is trying to DDOS me?
