Firewall logs

The ESET Cyber Security Pro firewall saves all important events in a log file. To access firewall logs from the main menu click Tools > Logs and then select Firewall from the Log drop-down menu.

Log files are a valuable tool for detecting errors and revealing intrusions into your system. ESET firewall logs contain the following data:

Date and time of event

Name of event

Source

Target network address

Network communication protocol

Rule applied

Application involved

User

A thorough analysis of this data can help detect attempts to compromise system security. Many other factors indicate potential security risks and can be defended against using firewall such as: frequent connections from unknown locations, multiple attempts to establish connections, unknown applications communicating or unusual port numbers.
