  • New to Untangle - how do I view blocked incoming traffic?

    Hi everyone. I'm just getting set up with this so please bear with me. If I understand correctly Untangle comes with the typical *block all in* *allow all out* rule. I'm used to peeking at the blocked attempts/addresses (usually just bots probing my ip) but I'm not having much luck finding that area. Can you help? I'm doing Reports -> Firewall -> Blocked Events and that page has no entries. Thank you.

    The Firewall app operates at layer 7, so it has no bearing on anything blocked at layer 3.

    The Report you're looking for is Reports > Network > Blocked Sessions, which logs anything blocked at layer 3. However, that logging is disabled by default; it's almost entirely meaningless and mostly just takes up hard drive space. You can enable it in Config > Network > Advanced > Options, at the very bottom, but my advice is don't leave that enabled for long.
