okay more details about my intention: I got a script that checks some logs and acts upon violation by adding IPs to a sperate chain via iptables -A OFFENDERS -s IP -j DROP. So such IPs get blocked. Now I thought about how could I find out if IPs from OFFENDERS come again. So I put another chain to iptables (before the OFFENDERS), put the IPs from OFFENDERS and set the log target for each rule. But then I need a script that reads the logs and searches for IPs from OFFENDERS. Too complex for me :-) So I thought it should somehow be possible to achieve that quite easy IF I could add a script to be executed when a rule (that now goes to log target) matches. Thats were I stand now :-) All I "need" would be a way to excute a simple mailx command with the offending IP and send a mail to myselfOn Thu, 2012-03-08 at 13:45 +0100, tobi wrote:As mentioned in subject I want to run an external script upon matching of a certain rule.I'm not aware of any way to do that. What exactly do you want to achieve? It may be that there is another way of doing what you want. Andy
