syslog.conf and iptables
A relatively simple problem, regarding some testing of iptables functionality.
I am trying to examine the logs which are generated after entering the command:
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -j LOG
Attempting to access the Axis board over HTTP produces the expected logs,
but these are only output to the debug console (accessed via hyperterminal).
I have tried modifying the syslog.conf to redirect the logs to
/var/log/firewall.log but can't seem to find a matching case.
excerpt from /etc/syslog.conf:
# Log messages to the console.
# save firewall messages to /var/log/firewall.log
I've tried several different wildcards (eg kern.*) and locating the command
at the top and tail of the syslog.conf file but still the output only goes
to the console output. This is despite killing syslogd and/or rebooting.
Any ideas anyone?
Thanks in advance,
