Thread: Question about iptables..

    Question about iptables..

    once iptables are up & running, do they automatically generate a log file somewhere? If so where? If not, how do you tell it start logging?
    I'm running RH7.2.

    Well it depends on what your rules are. If you tell it to log, it will. Otherwise it won't. Run "iptables -L" to see if there are any rules with target LOG. If not, you may want to insert some logging rules just before the rules to accept or deny certain packets.
