ulogd(8) netfilter/iptables ULOG daemon


ulogd [options]


ulogd connects to the netlink device of the Linux kernel and reads messages from the netfilter that get queued with the iptables ULOG target. For this to work you have to compile the ULOG target into your kernel or load the respective module.

The received messages can be logged into files or into a mySQL or PostgreSQL database.
