[DD-WRT] Wallwatcher replacement

Greetings

Been using Wallwatcher for years on my PC to capture and display DD_WRT syslog.

I am in the process of upgrading to an Imac and I am looking for a similar program (for OSX Lion).

Any suggestions??

Take a look at linklogger software.

That is a windows only package - as is Wallwatcher.

Yep, Windows OS is very popular and enabling.

IOS is highly proprietary -- and designed for people who only want to be controlled end to end.
However to make you a happy camper consider the following

Enable an Apple Mac OS X machine as a syslog server

Thanks for the reply - I am assuming you are being sarcastic and not an a$#h^&*

IOS is Unix - with a very tight GUI. Not more "controlling" than some of the Nix distros out there.

ANY Nix machine can be easily enabled as a syslog server.

As noted in the OP - this is to decode DD-WRT syslogs - which are basically raw IPTABLES log entries. A program like Wallwatcher or Linklogger decode these IPTABLES firewall logs into a readable display format.

BTW: I am a very happy camper having ditched windows after many years
