@Fr8ty if it were somebody calling me fearing a compromised IP address I'd be getting them to CSA teams asap.

Don’t know his actual info he uses a vpn and proxy 24/7

Personally my first priority would be to make sure I have a good router so that if anything suspicious IS happening I can see it in the logs and mitigate its impact.

I limit incoming connections to my NAS to only countries I know I might VPN/SSH in from.  You can also add block lists for known attackers, compromised IPs, etc.  You could also block his VPN simply by entering their AS number (I'm yet to test this though).

Obviously that doesn't protect from DDoS, but it does provide a decent level of protection from compromise and make identifying a DDoS a lot easier.

@Alex Atkin UK has a valid point. A better router. Something more business grade that has a good firewall/ better security options. Im not saying that you shouldn't call your ISP for a solution. But if your doing business on this network, then you need business level security to keep you safe. If you can get the IP he is attacking you from, you should be able to track it down to a VPN provider, IP address assignments should be public domain, thats how Netflix catches and bans VPN's from accessing their servers. If you can find out who it belongs to, maybe you can call them and file a complaint. It may or may not do anything but its at least worth a try. Because some VPN's keep logs, plus a DDOS requires a lot of data to be thrown at a network, which means they could potentially cause issues to others using the VPN service, not to mention issues for your ISP, if the node gets overloaded from the data. 


You ever notice that many establishments have a sign that as "No Shirt, No Shoes, No service"? They never say anything about pants............ You know what that implies. You dont have to wear pants.

Yeah I am saving up to buy a good router but right now I am fine with the router my ISP provides. I have never had problems until now which isn't the routers fault.
