Log dispatching?

Hi there,

I have a question regarding linux logging using the syslogd daemon. I have configured the kernel logging in the syslog.conf and it writes all kernel log information to the file specified in my syslog.conf.
I'm using my computer as a firewall/router so I enabled and configured iptables. In the iptables script I dump some log information using the LOG target. Now all kernel logging is sent to the file as configured in my syslog.conf, but also all other kernel logging is send to this file. This is quite logic because I configured it in the syslog.conf. But is it possible to filter the kernel logging regarding iptables and send it to an own file???

Kind regard,
