See reason why iptables is blocking someone
I was kind of joking about how much blocking iptables was doing but I noticed that my messages file was over 5 megs in size so I'm sitting here with a tail on my /var/log/messages file and it's nothing but "iptables denied" messages.
With lots of:
Oct 15 21:45:26 vps vmunix: [161283.176386] iptables denied: IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=blah SRC=18.104.22.168 DST=blah LEN=48 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=121 ID=5556 PROTO=TCP SPT=1606 DPT=6914 WINDOW=16384 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0
Is there any way too tell why a connect is being blocked? Google'ing for keywords doesn't pull up anything right off.
