Professionally I am Linux SysAdmin cum Mongodb Administrator for mailin.fr. For last two years I have been mostly handling Mongodb stuff which means taking care of huge Mongodb cluster. In addition to Mongodb, Postfix, Apache and other regular Linux server stuff is always there to take my time.

I love the idea of open source software and really want to contribute to the society by sharing whatever knowledge I have gained so far.

comment Ubuntu iptables logs not going to any log file
Hi, justlovingIT, the iptables rules were right and worked well on other servers. This problem was only on VPS provided by a specific vendor. I tried the same rules on another VPS provied by another vendor and everything was working as expected. May be its the problem of virtualization architecture with that specific vendor. Anyways, I changed the provider.

@pepoluan - Thanks, I know you tried your best. Anyways, I don't see any problem with the config. I think I need to change provider and get another server.

should it not go to its default location ? Like /var/log/kern.log or /var/log/syslog. I have another server and it works there. Once its there in the default log files then I put a rule to filter them to another file. I guess filters are needed to separate logs in different file for better house keeping.

One thing I forgot to mention, this is OpenVZ VPS. I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

Right now, NO. Though I will do it once I start seeing the logs in any of the log files.
