General Questions / How to use pfsense as a transparent sniffer only
« on: February 01, 2018, 06:49:18 pm »

Here is my use case: I want to upgrade my current internet box with a pfsense box. However, the traffic between the tv box and the internet box is special and I want to investigate it to be able to properly configure my pfsense box.

As such I want a "sneaky" pfsense that will simply log all traffic and act as a simple Ethernet cable from the internet and tv box perspective.

What would be the best way to do it ?

General Questions / max size logs ?
« on: February 07, 2017, 03:17:01 pm »

I'm having a hard time with setting up my logs file. i tried setting up a special size only for filter.log using the GUI, but it failed and after i reset log to apply it either it doesn't log anymore or it has a strange very inferior size.
So I am trying to roll back to same size for those ~20 logs.
So i go to   Status /System Logs /Settings / General Logging Options and try to set up 5GB for each clog ( which is not ideal I would want 1GB for all and 100GB for filter.log but at this point i'm just trying to get it to work).
Here is a screenshot

I save then reset log files on that page ( blue then red button ).
All is logging fine but then i connect with ssh and perform a wc to check and i see i get very little file size ( 705032704 ), here is a screenshot:

I have ample size and dedicated that 250GB SSD to logging, is there no way i can use that space to have big log files ?

Thanks for helping :)
