NAME

tcplog.conf - configuration file for tcplog(8).

 

SYNOPSIS

/etc/tcplog.conf

 

DESCRIPTION

The tcplog(8) configuration file is used to specify the level at which connections to given ports should be logged.

Log levels for packets are specified using the `type [level]' rule described below.

A default log level can be specified with the level keyword, which is used for port numbers which have not been explicitly assigned a level in the configuration.

The default syslog facility can be overriden with the facility keyword. configuration.

The `except' keyword can be used to specify a list of hosts from which connections should be ignored.

Lines beginning with `#' (shell-style comments) and blank lines in the configuration file are ignored.

An example configuration is included with the source distribution and is installed by default into /etc/tcplog.conf
