I have been testing both m0n0wall and PFSense on my home lan and have 
found some things from each that are very nice. I was wondering what the 
possibilities were to setup the syslogging on the m0n0wall similar to 
that done by pfsense. On the PFsense gui it seems they have broken the 
logs up in to each specific log so for example when I want to see the 
logs for my IPsec tunnels I just go to the IPsec tab in the log section 
and boom it displays only the ipsec logs. That is nice. Does m0n0wall 
have the same ability and if not can it be considered for future releases?
Since it is not a current feature has anyone setup syslog or even better 
syslog-ng to capture the logs and create separate logfiles from the m0n0 
output? Can you share the conf files? I can get syslog-ng to grab data 
but it puts it in weird format all in one file and it is a PIA to parse.
Thanks in advance!
