[Plesk firewall] Add a possibility to see in Plesk GUI the logs of connections dropped by different Plesk firewall rules
It would be nice to be able to assess the effectiveness of Plesk firewalls rules, especially the ones manually placed by Plesk users.
This information would be important to see in Plesk GUI if this is implemented:
- date and time stampts
- the name of rule
- the exact IP address from where the connection was dropped
- the destination port and protocol
Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it is popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

Add the possibility to enable logging/debug for iptables through the Plesk Firewall in order to get more details about what packages are being dropped by specific rules. This will help to troubleshoot when some rules are blocking applications.

I just finished cleaning up a nasty mess where google was accidentally blocked by a custom firewall rule. I learned of the problem right away because I do advertising on Google, but for those that don't, it might take a LONG time to figure it out. Having separate firewall stats and details would have made this a LOT easier to find the problem and fix it, and might make other problems a lot easier to notice.
This is extremely important.
