Hello all, I'd like to suggest a something for m0n0wall that is in the
category of a core firewall feature. It is a requirement for a number
of different external security audits that there be an audit trail for
any changes made to a firewall. Beyond being a common external audit
requirement, it would be a great aid for those of us with complex rule
sets to see what we changed and when we changed it.
A case in point occured yesterday when I made a number of "innocent"
changes which resulted in a periodically critical service to partially
fail a day later. Discovering which of the 4 changes caused the problem
was a fair headache as I hadn't written down my actions as I performed
them. Tracking the changes is something that the GUI could do quite
easily but is a pain to do manually and easy to forget.
