How to reduce amount of (firewall) logging
I am running Mandrake 10.0 with Firestarter.
There are a few Windows machines on my subnet and my logs are FULL of hits that I do not want to log. I get hit at least every ten seconds. Those are not my machines and I have no control over them.
How can I stop logging this? For example, a machine on my subnet constantly hitting me from source port 1919 to destination port 5000?
I know about grepping logs and such, but I'd like to reduce the volume of logging. Or, if that's a stupid idea, please explain why. Thanks.
