Thread: Syslog server setup

  1. #1

    Syslog server setup

    I want to setup my Ubuntu 8.04 box as a syslog server. First I need it to listen for "remote" syslogs. I edited /etc/init.d/sysklogd to accomplish this purpose. I changed

    SYSLOGD="-r -m0"

    Then I did a netstat -tulp but I don't see anything on 514. In fact, I don't see anything different from earlier at all. What gives?

    By editing the file /etc/syslog.conf I was able to change the location of my local system's logs, but I want this system to listen for remote logs.

    Any ideas?

    Did you reload/restart the syslog daemon?

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Everything I read online says this should be a snap.
