Projects / fwLOGview


fwLOGview is a graphical, real-time, colorized log viewer for Linux netfilter/iptables, Cisco Pix, *BSD ipfilter, Fortigate, and other logs. It displays the log entries in colors related to the firewall action. You can hide unimportant columns, change the order in which columns are shown, and set filters to focus on important entries.
