Unhappy How do I get network logs?

I'm trying to pin down this problem I have with natd. It appears to be reloading several times during startup. But because the startup flies by I don't get a chance to look at its log.

Where abouts does the network log reside?

Thanking you in advance,

Most, if not all log files are under /var/log, however a quick scan of the natd man page and a look at /etc/defaults/rc.conf and I would say that natd doesn't do any logging by default.

The man page for natd explains how to enable logging, just add the command line args to natd_flags in /etc/rc.conf

Furthermore, you can decide where your logging facilities are logged with syslog: "/etc/syslog.conf".
