Reports on packets logged by a system's packet filtering subsystems

"fireparse" reports on all packets that have been logged by the kernel's ipchains and iptables packet filtering subsystems. The report can include source and destination IPs, ports and protocols; interface; direction; hit count; iptables rule; resulting action; and fully resolved host name. It can be formatted plain text e-mail or a colored HTML table, and delivered via e-mail or a local file. 'Fireparse' also moves all iptables entries from your syslog file into a second message file so that other syslog entries are more easily noticed and recognized.
