    How to Log TCP and UDP errors during data transfer?

    Hi guys,

    I am quite newbie with Linux networking and I want to know if there exist a log in Linux where errors during transfers are stored.
    I mean, when I'm transferring data between two hosts is there any way to log somewhere (where?) the errors or warning during the transfer? That is, connection failures, TCP or UDP errors, etc.? Is there any "log level" to select the errors to be displayed in the log not to work with a huge log file?

    Thanks in advance!
