Status: System logs: Firewall kaput?



  • (running 2.0-ALPHA-ALPHA built on Sun Dec 6 00:13:01 EST 2009 FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE-p1)

    The log is empty for me (in every of the 3 viewmodes), even though there are definitely entries in /var/log/filter.log
    The option "Log packets blocked by the default rule" is checked, so that's not the issue.
    Also, if I check "Show raw filter logs" in the settings, logs are being displayed fine; at least in the "Normal View", the others still remain empty.

    Here's a snippet of my filter.log if that's of any help:
    5350, offset 0, flags [none], proto UDP (17), length 80)

  • there was a problem with the logs earlier this week that I fixed, if you upgrade that should be fine.



  • Just upgraded to 2.0-ALPHA-ALPHA built on Fri Dec 11 19:41:11 EST 2009 FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE-p1
    but sadly with the same results :(

    ..it might just be me though :-[



  • It was fixed after that snapshot



  • Ahh, ok!
    Guess I misunderstood the earlier this week part :P

    Will wait for the next snapshot and report back :)



  • the problem was caused earlier this week, i fixed it a couple hours before I posted.



  • Just upgraded to 2.0-ALPHA-ALPHA built on Sun Dec 13 22:41:10 EST 2009 FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE-p1,
    but still don't have any logs displayed.
    Should I consider a reinstall? :(



  • It's definitely not a problem there. Got a screenshot of what you're seeing?



  • Sure thing!

    So the log view is empty, but there are really entries in filter.log?

    I'm not seeing this on a freshly gitsync'd box.

    I did find an unrelated bug and fixed it, you may want to try a gitsync on the off chance it might help.



  • @jimp:

    Seems that didn't fix it either :(
    I'll just go with a clean install once I upgrade my hardware, which hopefully is soon! (that PII is starting to get dusty :D)

    Thanks for all the help though!
