Webfwlog is a flexible web-based firewall log analyzer and reporting tool. Webfwlog supports standard system logs for linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Solaris, Irix, OpenBSD, OS X, etc. as well as Windows XP.

Supported log file formats are netfilter, ipfilter, ipfw, ipchains and Windows XP. Webfwlog also supports logs saved in a database using the ULOGD target of the linux netfilter project.

With Webfwlog you can design reports to use on your logged data in whatever configuration you desire. Included are example reports as a starting point.

You can sort a report with a single click, "drill-down" on the reports all the way to the packet level, and save your reports for later use. You can also create a link directly to any saved report.

A web server with PHP >= 4.1
Log files in standard netfilter, ipfilter, ipfw, ipchains or Windows XP format or database logs populated with the ULOG target of netfilter.

What's New in This Release:
It is now possible to add an abritrary column definition when data is logged to a database. This requires that the allow_raw_sql parameter in webfwlog.conf be set (this was previously called allow_additional_where). There are security consideration to allowing this. See the security advisory below.
The release notes below for previous releases may still apply if upgrading.
