NAME

       icmplog - ICMP packet logger.

SYNOPSIS

       icmplog [-f, --file filename ] [-n, --no-resolve] [-v, --version]

DESCRIPTION

       icmplog  , a ICMP packet logger, is a part of the jail (just another ip
       logger) package.

       icmplog is a small (daemon) process which logs all ICMP packets to  the
       local  host.  The  syslog  level  at  which a given packet is logged is
       configurable depending on the ICMP type of the  message.  Packets  from
       specific  hosts  can  be  ignored,  and  a  default  log  level  can be
       specified.

       icmplog can be useful in detecting attempted denials  of  service,  and
       monitoring  network  traffic,  especially when used in conjunction with
       tcplog(8).

       The configuration is explained in the icmplog.conf(5) manual page.

OPTIONS

       -f, --file [ filename ]
              Use filename as the configuration file instead  of  the  default
              (/etc/icmplog.conf).

       -n, --no-resolve
              Do not resolve IP addresses to hostnames.

       -v, --version
              Display icmplog(8) version.
