I am looking for software or a method to test my firewall setup against various attacks, as well as a log parser that will alert me when things get fishy.  Something visual is preferred but not required.  My firewall is running on an embedded distribution of linux, with a reasonably recent version of iptables.  Remote logging and parsing is available on a full linux box.
