I have installed iptables yesterday and currently using a basic script from
web to enable firewall. The script logs the dropped packets using following
/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -j LOG --log-prefix "FIREWALL:INPUT "
/sbin/iptables -I INPUT 1 -p tcp -m state --state INVALID -j LOG --log-prefix
iptables seem to be working fine but the problem is that it is logging
everything in /var/log/messages but I want it to log it some other file. May
be /var/log/iptables. I have googled and found that syslog-ng can do it and
some entries in /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf should work but I am not sure
how to do it. "man syslog-ng.conf" is not making much sense for me either
Can some one please give me any links where I can read about how to easily
configure syslog-ng.conf and achieve what I desire. If you could give exact
entries then I would be more than greatful.
