    Monitoring IPtables router / firewall

    Can anyone suggest a realtime log parser for iptables? Other than tail -f /var/log messages ;-)

    I have played with fwmon a little, and I am looking for something similiar, just an ongoing list of packets handled by the firewall.

    Thanks in advance!

    Using Google for "iptables log"
    nets several choices for you to try.

    If you just want a list, why not just use find or cat?
    Grep for the content you want and append it to a file using cron?

    Can probably cook up a script for you if you give more detail about what you would
    like to see..

    For ongoing stats with a gui to view the 1st on the google list looks okay with me..

    sweet, that helps a lot. I was google'ing too descriptive I guess. I needed to step back and simplify my search.
