syslog and firestarter - log messages to another file than messages
i installed a rh 9.0 box and putted firestarter on it. firestarter logs a lot of activities, quite interesting but: the messages log with other kernel-messages gets absolutely inreadable. so, as a newbie i tried hard to change the syslog-facility (which wasn't that easy...), and it seems to work.
here is mit syslog.conf, PLEASE CAN ANYONE CHECK, THAT I STILL GET LOGGED EVERYTHING IN MY MESSAGES-FILE EXCEPT FIREWALL-LOG-ENTRIES??
Thanks a lot. BTW. if it really helps, i think, this change can help a lot of others too....
[root@link etc]# more syslog.conf
# Log all kernel messages to the console.
# Logging much else clutters up the screen.
# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
# IPTABLES - Messages, a try
# The authpriv file has restricted access.
# Log all the mail messages in one place.
# Log cron stuff
# Everybody gets emergency messages
# Save news errors of level crit and higher in a special file.
# Save boot messages also to boot.log
