I want iptables to log information to syslog.
This is my syslog.conf file:
I added rule to iptables:
iptables -A FORWARD -j LOG
But /logs/iptables is empty.
I tried to test it with logger:
logger -p kern.warn "test"
But nothing happened.
I tried to use mail.* /logs/iptables in syslog.conf and then test it with logger:
logger -p mail.info "test", and it worked!
Why doesn't syslog want to log from the kern facility?
