I have a doubt about IPS software blade. I would like to know if it is possible to limit the number of connections to an internal host using the IPS software blade.
Of course you can, please check the following IPS Protections (and Inspection Settings on R80.X):
If SecureXL is enabled the best way to do this is using the Rate Limiting feature described in the R77 Security Gateway Technical Administration Guide. Command is fw samp add quota as shown here:
Using the IPS Network Quota signature will work as well, but will pretty much eliminate any chance of SecureXL accelerating anything whatsoever on the firewall.
