Syslog from external machine
admin at asarian-host.net
Wed May 21 13:39:20 PDT 2003
Using FreeBSD 4.7R, I was experimenting a bit with my router's syslog
facility (on port 514). I set up syslogd like this:
/usr/sbin/syslogd -a 192.168.1.1:514
Assuming this would allow incoming UPD on port 514 for the 192.168.1.1
router address. Alas, nothing is logged in /var/log/messages.
I did a tcpdump, and get entries like this:
22:33:14.447792 my.router.syslog > asarian-host.net.syslog: udp 90
22:33:14.744037 my.router.syslog > asarian-host.net.syslog: udp 86
Am I missing something? Do I need to start syslogd differently? (btw, I
flushed the firewall rules for the occasion, as this is a vmware
Any suggestion will be highly appreciated?
