I'm on a linux proxy server. All of our internet traffic is routed through this server. I need to add an iptable rule that will log all ip addresses requested on port 443. How do I do that?

Bear in mind this won't log any data, but just the details of the request.

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 443 -j LOG

If you wanted to capture more data tcpdump is a handy tool
