Firewall logs

The Logs tab is a tabled, real-time and up-to-date integration of the traffic logs generated by the Firewall. It will show all the connections that have been active on your computer.


To access this tab, simply open BullGuard and select the Logs option by clicking on the  button from the Firewall section.

Event: the type of event. 

Direction: the traffic direction (incoming or outgoing). 

Protocol: the protocol type (UDP, TCP, ICMP, IGMP, etc.) used by that specific connection. Local: the source IP address (the IP address of the computer that sent the specific packet).

User interaction with logs

Right-clicking on any field in the log displays a contextual menu with several options.

Search by: allows you to filter the log by the Application System, IP Address or IP Port of the currently selected event. The filtering function can also be used my manually entering an application system, IP address or IP port in the search field and clicking Search.
