  • IMSpector is transparent. You just enable it and it will log any IM connections going through pfSense.

    +1 this is correct. The only problem right now is that its not working with the latest AIM, but thats ok, not many people on my network IM.



  • It could be because it uses HTTP/ port 80 or?
    There were an explanation somewhere on how to block port 80 comms for IM's I think…



  • very good.. work's very very fine! the log file have some size limit ?.. if not, can i limit that by some way ?, thanks.



  • No size limit on the logs. You could put a cron job in your config to remove logs older than X days. Something like the below command should work. Use this at your own risk.

    find /var/imspector -mtime +7 -exec rm -f {} ;
