    I must say I'm new to this update for my WRT54G!! What a great update :rockon:

    So I have a few questions I flashed my router and I can SSH to my AP from inside my network but how can I view my firewall log? I can usually do a tail -f /var/log/messages to see scan's on my other Linux/Firewall box is there a pretty GUI to see what sort of attacks are happening on this AP or a shell command I can run? If I make this my main Firewall / Router / AP is there a nice front end I can use to see security attack maybe I can incorporate my desktop running snort to watch the firewall. This sort of thing really intrigues me!! Thanks again for the great continuing upgrades for this appliance it makes playing with a cheap device a work horse!!!!

    One more thing I can see my data rate go between 30Mb - 54Mb is this typical? I guess it really does not matter considering the bottle neck would be my ISP...

    Enable Adminstration->Services->Syslogd

    Then you can tail -f /var/log/messages

    You can also tell the syslogd to send its output to another machine. I do this and I have http://www.kiwisyslog.com/ running on a WinXP machine.

    Sounds great!! But will this truly show what type of attacks are coming in? Is it possible to load up Snort on the XP desktop to watch the router? It would be nice to see what type of worms or attacks are pinging off the Router / Firewall / AP :thumb:

    -lo :rockon:
