I'm running into a problem configuring my syslogd in order to accept
messages from Routers (Cisco).
Here's what I did in my syslog.conf:
Fields are separated by tabs of course
In /etc/rc.conf I've got the following:
matching my local network.
Unfortunately I don't see anything in my syslog from the router(s). I
fired up tcpdump and sure enough the syslog-packets originating from
the router hit my machine.
To further track this down I changed the above line in syslog.conf to
Again, no syslog messages.
Again, no entry in the log
Sure enough I restared syslogd between every test; also I have the
fields in syslog.conf separted by tabs and the log-files in questions
are existent with and chmod-ed 600.
Any ideas what could be wrong here - or put in another way - has
anybody out there got logging from Ciscos towards a FreeBSD box
TIA for your help!
