You can also play with the log level S.A. 

*.notice                /var/log/networking

and set iptables -p tcp --dport x -m state --state NEW -j LOG
--log-level notice --log-prefix "TUNNEL CONNECT: "

This will put the information in a separate (/var/log/networking) file
if this log level is not used.
