I have a quick question. I already downloaded the pdf manual and looked through it. I probably just missed the information I was looking for.

I am using firestarter. It seems like a great firewall so far. It has a section that shows active connections. What I am trying to find out is if it logs these active connections to a file or not. If it does where would the file be? If it does not is there a way to get it to? If that is not possible is there a way to find out or get a program that logs all of the port activity? I found the etc/services file but that is not what I am looking for. There has to be something else. Thanks.

EDIT: I also know how to check to see what ports are open from the command line, netstat -pantu.

EDIT Again. Also I know about netsta -a, actually I just found out about it. But my origianl question stands on a written log of some sort that has all the port activity. I imagine it could get quite big.
