I am a complete newbie at iptables. I am trying to start logging as a first step before doing something else.
I have a single ethernet card, and just want to experiment and design a personal firewall.
My default policies are DROP for all three filter built-in chains, and I just add
iptables -A OUTPUT -j LOG --log-prefix _OUTPUT_
iptables -A INPUT -j LOG --log-prefix _INPUT_
iptables -A OUTPUT -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -j ACCEPT
As I use a striped down (busybox) version of syslog, maybe it is the problem, and that is what I need to decide.
Are my rules correct? Should I get logs with them?
Any hints are welcome.
