Re: syslog configuration with tcp

I have a few questions:

 

Are you sure you want to send debug-level log messages across your network? Why not just '*.info'?

Have you done a SIGHUP to restart the syslogd?

Are you running the remote syslogd agent without the '-N' option (that disables the port)?

Why do you have a double '@' on your remote logging entry?

Is the remote host IP address valid and accessible from your server?

Hi

 

Probably need syslog_ng:
