Hi

Just installed Fedora 7 notice that in my logs I am getting this:

possible SYN flooding on port 49272. Sending cookies.
possible SYN flooding on port 49272. Sending cookies.

Port 49272 is where my bittorrent client is. I have not noticed this in my Fedora Core 6 install before. I guess that the large number of connections coming into that port is triggering this.

Will this cause any problems to the peers connecting and can I disable SYN protection on just this port (If it is going to cause BT problems)?

Thanks in advance.
