Subject: Logging packets dropped by IPFW
Is there any way to generate log information about the packets dropped by IPFW? The 'log' modifier doesn't seem to do anything ...
options IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE #enable logging to syslogd(8)
options IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE_LIMIT=100 #limit verbosity
Thanks, Micheal. The manpage didn't mention that logging was a compile-time option; I'm recompiling now...
Took another very careful look at the manpage, and discovered that recompiling wasn't necessary after all:
# sysctl net.inet.ip.fw.verbose=1
suffices to turn it on. The IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE compile option just changes the default for this sysctl. Make this permanent by adding the line:
