Outgoing Traffic Logs

Outgoing Traffic Logs
« on: March 04, 2015, 01:14:47 PM »

I need to be able to look at a log of outgoing traffic from my SME server. The IPTables log only appears to log inbound traffic is there a similar log for outbound or should I be applying a specific filter to the log to see outbound traffic? Thanks for any suggestions - this is an entirely new area for me!!

Hi Stefano,

Thanks for taking the time to reply but I figured out that what I was looking for was indeed the iptables log files. These contain a log of all inbound and outbound connections made via the SME gateway. The server I was looking at only had inbound connections because it wasn't the default network gateway! Doh!!!
