Projects / fireparse


fireparse is an ADMLogger plugin that emails a report of all packets that have been logged by the kernel's packet filtering subsystem (iptables/netfilter or ipchains). The report includes source and destination ports, direction, logged packet count, matched rule, and fully resolved host names (if available). The email report can be formatted to plain text or a colored HTML table.

            Project pretty much dead
            This project is pretty much dead. Sorry, I don't have the time to do much with it anymore.

            I recommend somebody who has interest to (a) take it over or even better (b) port it to LogWatch which seems to come with a few distros now.

            Fireparse is a good product, very simple to configure, and the mails it generates are much more cumfortables to read than reading .txt logs :)
