Location of Firewall Log File

I see from support doc v98422057_ns_retail_en_us that if APC is turned on, then Norton should alert when any intrusion or firewall rule match for blocking is triggered.

I was hoping that the support documentation might show what the file name (and file path) is for the file, so I can check it myself from time to time.

Does anyone know if the firewall log file is readable by, say Notepad, or only from the Norton UI?

Re: Location of Firewall Log File

Hi F4E - many thanks for that info. I did check the forum before posting, and did not find anything like that. Anyway, I have had a good look around the History interface, and can see that the logged items can be filtered, and I can view the Firewall logs.

I am hoping that for the extra BLOCK rules I have manually added, to ensure that the bad Chinatelecom (and a few other) sites I have been seeing trying to port-scan my router, don't manage to find a way in, will cause Norton Security to shows a message if they get a "hit" (as I ticked the LOG box in most of the new rules I added).

You're welcome. Glad it helped. @td47

If your router is set up properly, its NAT firewall is your first line of defence, and if Norton is set to Public Network in Settings, then all ports should be stealthed as well.
