IP protocols logger
writes information about incoming ICMP messages, TCP connections and UDP datagrams to syslog.
It is highly configurable and has a built-in DNS cache.
Please note that upstream is rather inactive lately (no release since 2001), and that there are some rather nasty bugs.
An incomplete list of the bugs includes:
- random packets don't get logged sometimes - stops logging at all after some weeks - ipv6 never got implemented - documentation is out of sync.
Trying to fix these bugs is not easy. Please do not expect the Debian maintainer to do this, but patches are appreciated.
Please consider using a fully-grown intrusion detection system (like snort) instead of ippl.
