Logs full of hits to; how to stop logging?

I am using Mandrake 9.2 with the Firestarter firewall.

Every few seconds I get a hit with destination from the same computer. It isn't on my subnet, but it is on my larger network. (We share the first two digits of our IP addresses.)

How can I stop logging this? In Firestarter I chose to ignore this host, but it didn't help.

My logs are overflowing with this. Thanks.

You could manualy add an entry to the iptables that drops the packet before it gets to the log line that firestarter puts in there. You'll have to run the following line at startup after firestarter is running.

iptables -I INPUT -d -j DROP

That's kind of bypassing firestarter, but it should work. There's probably a way to turn down the logging in firestarter as well, but I've never used it, so I dunno.
