Turn on kernel logging of matching packets. When this option is set
for a rule, the Linux kernel will print some information on all

-.I dmesg
-.IR syslogd (8)).
+(where it can be read with \fIdmesg(1)\fP or read in the syslog).
This is a "non-terminating target", i.e. rule traversal continues at
the next rule. So if you want to LOG the packets you refuse, use two
separate rules with the same matching criteria, first using target LOG
