Logging incoming packets?

Logging incoming packets?

Post by Sir Hoagy of the Marshland » Sun, 08 Nov 1998 04:00:00



(Running Redhat 5.1)

I'm trying to determine how I would log any incoming
packets.  For example, if someone is ping'ing my
machine, I'd like to know if there's a program that
will log all incoming packets.  I can't seem
to locate such.

Anyone have a clue on this one?

On sunsite, there is a program called iplogger in
/pub/Linux/system/network/daemons/
Since you are running redhat, you could also get an RPM from
the contrib directory. You could also configure ipfwadm to log all
incoming packets on a particular interface.

1. Logging incoming, outgoing packet on firewall, good choice or bad choice ?

I would like to know if its a good choice to log packets thats being
send and recieved, and what the advantages is of logging packets on
firewalls.

How much information can you see on logged packets ?, and where would
you log the packets and protect the log from malicous hackers, trojan
kids or script kids ?
