NAME

       icmplog.conf - configuration file for icmplog(8).

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/icmplog.conf

DESCRIPTION

       The icmplog(8) configuration file is used to specify the level at which
       ICMP packets of a given type should be logged.

       Log levels for packets are specified  using  the  â€â€˜type  [level]â€â€™  rule
       described below.

       A  default  log level can be specified with the level keyword, which is
       used for packet types which have not been explicitly assigned  a  level
       in the configuration.

       The default syslog facility can be overriden with the facility keyword.

       The ‘except’ keyword can be used to specify a list of hosts from  which
       connections should be ignored.

       Lines  beginning with ‘#’ (shell-style comments) and blank lines in the
       configuration file are ignored.

       An example configuration is included with the source  distribution  and
       is installed by default into /etc/icmplog.conf

KEYWORDS

       except [host], [host], [host]
              Specify  a list of hosts to ignore connection requests from. The
              list can be comma  or  whitespace  separated,  and  may  contain
              fragments  like  ‘192.168.’   and ‘.foo.com’. If the fragment is
              numeric, it  is  compared  with  the  IP  of  the  source  host,
              otherwise the comparison is made with the resolved hostname.

       level [level]
              Specify  the default logging level. The level  can be any one of
              IGNORE, ERR, WARNING, NOTICE, INFO and DEBUG.

       facility [facility]
              Specify the default logging facility. The facility  can  be  any
              one of USER, DAEMON and LOCAL0-7.

       [type] [level]
              This  is  a  generic  rule  which  specifies  the level at which
              packets of a certain type are logged. The  type  can  either  be
              numeric,  or  one  of  the  keywords ‘echoreply’, ‘destunreach’,
              ‘quench’, ‘redirect’, ‘echo’, ‘timeout’, ‘paramprob’, ‘timereq’,
              ‘timerep’,  ‘inforeq’  or  ‘inforep’.  The level, as above, is a
              syslog.h symbolic constant.
