If you are using the --log option of ipchains, and get nothing in your /var/log/messages, then you will have to modify /etc/syslog.conf.

Put in this:

kern.info      /var/log/messages

If you want it in another file use another filename. Then you just add something like:

tail -f /var/log/messages > /dev/tty9 &

to your rc.local file.
