Logging & Other Features

The Logging feature can selectively record the following events:

  • Router admin (start up, get time etc)
  • Connections to the Web-based interface of the router
  • Known DoS attacks and Port Scans
  • Attempted access to blocked sites
  • All websites and newsgroups visited
  • All local activity
  • All incoming and outgoing traffic

You can view, clear, refresh, and immediately send the log to one designated email address, or schedule the emailing of the log on an hourly, daily, weekly, or "when full" basis. Immediate email alerts can also be sent which are triggered by three different types of events. Logging to a Syslog daemon is also supported and you can either specify an IP address or have the FWAG broadcast the syslog info to all LAN clients.

Finally, the FWAG has a few other features that I haven't mentioned, such as:

  • you can set the router's MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) value (useful in getting some PPPoE-based connections to work)
  • you can set and view 8 static routes (useful in networks that have more than one subnet)
  • dynamic routing protocols RIP1, and RIP 2B, and RIP 2M are supported
  • you can enable the router to respond to WAN ping requests (this is disabled by default, which is good security practice)
  • dynamic DNS support is built-in for using dyndns.org
