Log the packets with a specific prefix, and use rsyslog with the Mail Output Module and relevant configuration to alert you to such logs: http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/ommail.html 2. Use ULOGD. Never really used it myself, but you might be able to create some sort of userspace program that alerts you. 3. Log the IP addresses to an IPSET, and use a cron job to check the list of IP addresses in the set. Just thoughts, but hopefully one of the above will work.
