IP spoofing doesn't work with TCP. Atleast it doesn't if you want to do a full handshake, which is required to bring up the admin panel.


Just to clarify any confusion, TCP packets' IP source can be falsified (which is part of how and why SYN flooding works) but being able to connect to a server requires a full handshake meaning that the source IP must be real so that a communication between the client and server exists and a connection can be established.

Thanks for clarifying my point.
