Firewall logging
« on: August 05, 2014, 10:33:44 am »
Hallo,

I have created the new firewall most of the problems should be out now,
i was thinking while building it would be nice to show logging on webadmin.
Now here becames the question what would any one want to see logged.
and to wich file syslog or a file named Firewall.
it can be on syslog en build a log prefix to see only firewall messages like for ipv4:
Firewall-v4-INPUT Firewall-v4-FORWARD Firewall-v4-OUTPUT
and for ipv6:
Firewall-v6-INPUT Firewall-v6-FORWARD Firewall-v6-OUTPUT
on this way you can see with grep all logged packets with grep Firewall
all-v4
and all ipv4 logged packets for the input with
grep Firewall-v4-INPUT
and so on.
on this way i can set it to filter the show log page on webadmin to what you want to see.
Let me now what you want to see logged and how so i can workout to have nice read log feature for Firewall.
because this makes debugging easyer and it is easyer to find a atacker as you can read the log easy.
