Hi, Nicolas.

I have already tried Leopard flower. I could not get it to work. But it also is not available in the ubuntu repositories. I tried it more for experimentation than in an attempt to really use it.

I think that an ubuntu-firewall-log that can report the application that generated a log report should be available to the wider ubuntu community in the repositories. Either the Main or Universe repositories. As you said in an earlier post, this helps with security
