ULOGD(8)                    System Manager's Manual                   ULOGD(8)



NAME
       ulogd - netfilter/iptables ULOG daemon

SYNOPSIS
       ulogd [options]

DESCRIPTION
       ulogd connects to the netlink device of the Linux kernel and reads mes-
       sages from the netfilter that get queued with the iptables ULOG target.
       For  this  to work you have to compile the ULOG target into your kernel
       or load the respective module.

       The received messages can be logged into files or into a mySQL or Post-
       greSQL database.

OPTIONS
       -d, --daemon
              fork ulogd into background (start as daemon)

       -c <&lt;filename>&gt;, --config-file <&lt;filename>&gt;
              use <filename> as configuration file instead of /etc/ulogd.conf

       -h, --help
              show usage information

       -V, --version
              show version information and copyright

FILES
       /etc/ulogd.conf
       /var/log/ulogd.log

SEE ALSO
       There  is  more documentation about the daemon and the database plugins
       (including examples) in the directories
