[olug] IPTables rejection logging.

Here is a sample of what I do:

-m limit --limit 3/minute --limit-burst 3 -j LOG --log-prefix "IPT
PREROUTING spoofed IP: "

The first line logs all packets from the internet on the reserved ip
range, and the second line DROPs those same packets.

The limit stuff is to keep the log file from growing too fast.  

Then I also have the default policies set to DROP and there is a LOG
rule as the last rule in each chain.

I want to add logging of denied access to my iptables rules.  Is there
anyone on this list who is able to get me started on writing iptables
rules?  Any suggestions would be usefull.
