Re: [suse-security] Logging what programs accesses network resources?

sorry for the repost, iptables does not log the application that made
network access attempt...


I know it is not quite what you asked for but, as root, if you run a
netstat command like
netstat -utap
you can see which programs are active on which ports on which ip.

In addition, if you run iptables (ie SuSEfirewall,, you can configure it to log exactly what
you are asking for.

I'm sure someone else will have a better answer but I hope this helps.

In a couple of software firewalls on Windows there can always be found
a log
that tells me what local program tried to access what port on what IP.

Is there something that does the same, but for linux?
