       fiaif-scan - print syslog entries in human readable form


       fiaif-scan [ -n ] [ -m ]


       fiaif-scan  reads  lines  from  STDIN  and  prints  to STDOUT, in human
       readable form, any packets found (standard syslog format  is  assumed).
       Each log message is parsed based on the configuration files at the time
       fiaf-scan is run.  The idea is to enable the user to  quickly  identify
       which  zone  rule is causing the packet to be logged, and how to change
       this, if necessary.


       -n     Don´t do a reverse lookup of IP addresses or ports; display them
              as  numbers.  This reduces the number of host lookups and speeds
              up scanning.

       -m     print the MAC address on each line.


       fiaf-scan -n </var/log/messages
              Scan from the current system log and display any packets on  the
              console.   Don´t  look up names for IP addressses or ports; just
              show the numbers.

       The program has been  tested  only  with  messages  from  the  standard
       syslog.  It may work on lines from ulogd, but this has not been tested.

       Bash may not be the fastest parser in the world. Expect  this  software
       to  be slow. (40 lines per sec on a K6-II/300Mhz without name lookups).
