Better to use something like:

If Bart would like to use tcpdump for the same purpose, consider running something like:

        tcpdump -nt 'port 25 and (tcp[tcpflags] & tcp-syn != 0)'

Maybe my ipfw is old; it kept telling me that "log" is an invalid action. However, I think I may be able to get the tcpdump idea to work.

There's a kernel option you need to enable for IPFW to do logging. If you're kldload'ing the ipfw module, it probably wasn't compiled with IPFW_LOGGING or whatever the exact name is.

I had set the verbosity (I think that was the parameter) from googling around earlier, but that doesn't seem to help. I'm probably missing an option somewhere else.

But you're right...tcpdump will be my friend :-)
