Yes and this is why I want them to be logged separately. Thanks to the helpful
replies by everyone, I have been able to log iptables log to a separate file
but the problem still remains.
/var/log/messages is getting flooded by iptables log. I can't see any helpful
output by using dmesg. The kernel config says that ULOG is deprecated so I
don't know how good it would be to use it. Also the kernel.log/kern.log is
not getting updated with messages like connection of a USB device and all; so
can't leave dmesg altogether.
Since it is a desktop machine, I will not be making database of my firewall
logs.Just require my dmesg output to be clean while having the ability of
looking at firewall logs occasionally. How can I achieve that? Should I
switch to ULOG? I am just a bit sceptical about using a deprecated thing.
Thanks once again to everyone for their replies
