            Logging to the console
            I have several redhat boxes using the Turtle via webmin. Love it, but the logging broadcast packets to the console is driving me and other colsole users absolutely nuts. (Yes we have M$ on the network) Is there some way to edit the config files to stop console logging of broadcast packets? Maybe even Multicast packets? (Cisco CDP protocol)
            Alternativly, can I add a field to the rules to optionally log or not log a rule so i can create my own rule to block broadcast and not log it at all.

            I installed this project but am unable to correctly configure it. I think a translation of the documentation to english
            would be a big help as I am Italian challenged.
