CentOS4.5(=Redhat Ent 4, I think) and EMail attachments

Post by Basher52 » Fri Oct 26, 2007 1:24 pm

I just can't get this thing to work, and my all my googling the only thing I found is, that it seems that CentOS 4.5 just can't do it :(
I used CentOS 4.5 and not 5 because in 5 I didn't find a working ulogd that worked, and I sure want one so I can check the iptables log in a nice way.

I haven't looked around lately if there now is a ulogd for CentOS 5 or later, but if anyone of you knows that, tell me please cos this version my be able to do attachments.

anyways... anyone know a fix for this?

I think CentOS 4.5 would be equivalent to Red Hat 4 Update 5. CentOS 5 should be Red Hat 5. Have you tried building ulogd on CentOS 5?

I can't remember really, but I do think I did.
I think I even tried some RPM's made for Redhat 4 but as always I got some dependency errors and I do think I tried to compile one version that I found... somewhere :P

I know CentOS 4.5(or Redhat 4[u5]) is old as the 'big bang' but if I just could find a ulogd that worked for a newer version, I'd use that one.

Right now I got one machine up and running v4.5 and I don't have any other empty PC doing nothing, so I really don't wanna mess this one up if there ain't no ulogd for CentOS 5 or later.

btw, I use CentOS just 'cos it's a 'Enterprise' version and is supposed to be more stable as a server than to use Fedora, even though I never had any problems using Fedora as my server.

I personally prefer Fedora but I have to use Red Hat here at work (We're running v3,4, and 5). I could try and get an RPM compiled for you on Red Hat 5 that would work on your CentOS. I just shipped a Penguin Computing box back to the vendor with CentOS on it. Only problem might be finding a Red Hat 5 box that isn't running the 64 bit version. I assume you are running 32 bit right? I should still be able to build a 32 bit package but it could be a pain.

nah don't put too work into this.
I'll try a newer version of CentOS and see if there are a version that works.
And yes it's the 32bit version.

I've been looking around and I found some nice Web-based FW log viewers so my question now is if anyone know a good and preferably very much customizable version?
and off course it should be able create/read what iptables does and not the 'ulogd' since this is what I had problem with in the first place

Have you looked at firewall builder?

No I didn't see this one, but isn't this a "builder"?
I want to use my test based script but see the log from that in a web browser, or does this create the same script, with all the

iptables -t filter -A INPUT -i... and so on?

All you are after is just want a nice way to view your firewall logs? I personally have my iptables configured to log to syslog and in turn have my syslog.conf configured to send those logs to a remote syslog server and use "splunk" on that remote syslog server to index and view the logs (along with all my other logs):

www.splunk.com

I have all my machines log to one dedicated log server for centralized logging. Much simpler.

Sorry for the "no reply", been busy as heck at work :)

Yep I'm just after a way to view the firewall log nicely.
and since I only have one machine so far to view I don't need another just to keep the logs on.

I'll try that splunk thing later

You could run Splunk on the same machine. It's just better to have a dedicated log server if you have several machines you want to keep logs from.

I Just took a look at Splunk but for me it looks more like statistic data.

What I want is a iptables log analyzer with coloring and not using a database either.

I was looking around again and found this: http://webfwlog.sourceforge.net/
but this needs a database.

Hmm, I implemented Splunk at work to capture 140GB of firewall logs daily. You can generate reports similar to what that webfwlog is reporting with Splunk or do fast ad hock searches of the raw logs. It's sort of like Google for your logs with the added capability of easily generating graphs of whatever you want on the fly. The main thing I don't like about it is it's not open source.

That is always a bad thing.


maybe I peeked on it a little too fast.
I thought you couldn't do anything else than what it showed, but if you say
I can do it like webfwlog, then I gotta read up on it, just hope it ain't too hard lol
