Firestarter output

Postby Lavene » 2006-01-15 19:01

I'm using the Firestarter firewall. It works ok but what is a majore anoyance sometimes is that it send the output to tty1.

Anyone know a way to change that so that it sends it to a file or even don't output anything? I know it works so I really don't need to know what it's doing constantly.

There's a command that should stop those messages: "dmesg -n1"

Or you can use a different firewall that supports the userspace logging daemon (ulogd), like FireHOL. (You should remove/purge firestarter before installing another firewall.)

Code: Select all
# aptitude install firehol ulogd
# nano /etc/default/firehol

Make sure that firehol.conf has the following two lines:

Code: Select all
# cp /etc/firehol/firehol.conf /etc/firehol/firehol.conf.bak
# firehol-wizard > /etc/firehol/firehol.conf

Then check the newly created firehol.conf file. If it looks OK, you can now start FireHOL.

Code: Select all
# /etc/init.d/firehol start

After this all the firewall log messages should go to /var/log/ulog/syslogemu.log.
