Re: Iptables logging
I've just about completed a port of fwanalog to be useful for us ipchains
folks, be on the lookout for it.
I am interested to know if ulogd/ulogd-mysql has any reporting
characteristics like fwanalog? It would be really nice to log my firewall
logs into a mysql database instead of flatfiles and then query the database
to pull out a analog report from it...
