Thread: SFW2 log files

    SFW2 log files

    Hi everybody,
    I hope I am posting in the correct location because my issue could be related to hardware not networking and firewall.

    If I type the command dmesg
    the server returns a lot of messages like this:
    SFW2-INext-DROP-DEFLT IN=eth0......
    SFW2-INext-ACC-TCP IN=eth0......
    so much in fact that the only messages I see start with "SFW2-"

    I understand that these messages are coming from the firewall dropping or accepting traffic.

    My question is, how can I redirect these messages so they do not fill up dmesg?

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 (x86_64)

    Thank you.
    David

    Hi
    Use YaST log viewer and look at the specific log, eg messages. You can
    set a filter there as well.

    Else you can just dmesg |grep -v "SFW2"
