Hello Riccardo,

I don't want to block it totally, i need a dynamic rule that will block it from like 12 hours when it detect spam activity.

thanks

I am not aware of anything like that available for routers. I don't see any quick and easy procedure to achieve that (thinking of complicated eem scripts checking traffic... but I guess it is kind of impossible to have the exact goal)  You might want to move this rule to a fw where you can have far greater flexibility in that sense  or...  you remove the rule after the attack is over.  Riccardo
