Hi,
typically, to mitigate a DDoS, you will have to setup a firewall.
If the attack is only directed at SFS2X you can configure the IP filter to disallow mass connections from the same IP address. However the best protection is always via firewall.

Hope it helps

Thank you Lapo,

If attacks come from same IP I can use IP filter but I dealt with attacks from wide range of IPs, have to setup firewall already

If you don't know how to setup a firewall it would be best to ask for consulting to your hosting provider.
You can talk to them and explain that you've been DDoS-ed and they should be able to see what's going on and help you filtering the malicious traffic.

Let us know how it goes
