Re: [PLUG] Incoming connection attempts--is this normal?


diald.filter is a pretty involved file, at least the e-smith one that my install came with. I tried changing the connect time from "medium" to "short", which reduces the amount of time the link stays up, with different values for different types of connections. I then manually adjusted the tcp.www value from a miserly 3 minutes to a more-reasonable 7 minutes (apparently some web pages take me 5 minutes or so to read) and so far, so good.

I will take a look at changing logging so it doesn't record every incoming connection attempt. You're right, it's resulting in large log files with little useful information in them.
