Subject [users@httpd] Configure httpd not to send responses
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2012 18:06:44 GMT

I would like to use httpd with mod_remoteip and mod_evasive to provide some DoS response for
my site.   I might later use mod_security for other rules as well.  Because of many reasons
the httpd server will will not be inline, but instead I intend to mirror traffic to the server
for analysis.

So, I won't have any content on the server and do not want 400 or 500 errors going back to
the client but I do want to analyze the requests.  I will use a  script to create firewall
rules when DoS rules are triggered.

I have not been able to find any docs on this and I'm not sure what the common terminology
is for this configuration.   Any tips on how to prevent this honeypot-ish server from responding
back to real clients would be appreciated.
