    Hide Server IP in cllient protocoll for ddos protection

    In these days Ddos attacks are sadly normality! You can either protect you from having an Hoster with an good Ddos protection or you can hide your TS ip with cloudflare for example and redirect it to an url.

    But in order to make this Ip hiding 100% proof Teamspeak needs to change their source code to hide this 3 lines in the client protocoll:

    31.03.2018 22:57:01 ClientUI Info Lookup finished: ip=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port=9987 query=ts.test-gaming.de
    31.03.2018 22:57:01 ClientUI Info Resolve successful: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9987
    31.03.2018 22:57:01 ClientUI Info Initiating connection: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9987


    Teamspeak needs an ip to connect that is true but it shouldn't show it. Because if someone wanna attack the Teamspeak Server and he can't find out the ip because it is protected by cloudflare. All he needs to do is to connect with an fake name on the Teamspeak server look into the client protocoll and he has the IP with port...

    Can Teamspeak change that? with this little step you would solve many many ddos attacks immediatly.

    This will only change how they get IP. But it won't change that the client always knows the IP and this can be grabbed easily.

    There is no way without using a ddos protection to stop this.

    Since Windows 7 you just have to start the Resource Monitor (resmon) to know the IP address of the TS3 server while connected to it. No need to use an external tool (beside of the TS3 client) and needs only 3 seconds of the bad guys time. No matter if the TS3 clients shows the ip address or not.

    Hmm well I agree with the general opinion, but against that you aren't 100% right.
    There a solution wich is a kind of hiding your server ip. It calls proxy.
    Well as I already said it's a kind of, but very effective. Caused to the fact that a proxy does not require so much intelligence, you have more performance left to analyze and filter "bad" packets or packets which are send to overload your server. (D-Dos).
    You also have the advantage, that you could install some kind of load balance and you could guarantee if one proxy is down all users could connect through another.

    The bad point is that, caused by TeamSpeaks ... Developers who are really happy about suggestions and realize them instantly within this century, all clients have the same ip address.
