Indeed, this now works. :) But I get a LOT of messages in /var/log/all.log!
Is there not a way I can log 'the rest'? See, now I have something like:
But what I would really want is: "Everything which is not covered by any of
the above, log to /var/log/router.log". Something like: "!*.*". Well, you
know what I mean.
If that is not possible, is there a way I can determine to what syslog
facility the router is logging? (like "mail.crit" or something).
