This is on FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT ia64.
I've ipfilter built into the kernel,
with logging enabled:
It works fine, but logs to a wrong file.
I run ipmon with -Ds options:
# ps ax|grep ipmon
740 ?? Ss 1:28.09 /sbin/ipmon -Ds
"D" is for deamon mode, and "s" is to log via syslog.
According to ipmon(8):
The default facility when compiled and installed is security.
So I've in /etc/syslog.conf:
but I get all ipmon messages in /var/log/messages.
According to my /etc/syslog.conf this file shouldn't
have ipmon messages:
What am I doing wrong?
