I've installed UFW and enabled logging. I've looked all over but can't find how to check the logs. Could someone point me in the right direction please, thanks!

Hi,

I've been having the same problem over the last 2 days. I think the UFW drops are recorded in the syslog file (/var/log/syslog).

I guess you are looking for entries with [UFW BLOCK xxxx] if my log is anything to go by.

To get the relevant entries try:


grep UFW /var/log/syslog

or


grep UFW /var/log/syslog | less

in a terminal

all the best

I found log lines in my kern.log.0 file in /var/logs nothing in syslog. my ufw.conf in /etc/ufwis set to

# set to one of 'off', 'low', 'medium', 'high'
LOGLEVEL=low
