Router Logs sent to Syslog - Can I change the location


Hello all,

I have just figured out how to send my DLINK ( DI-704p ) router logs to /var/log/syslog via the syslog server.

What I would like to know, is there a way instead of the router logs going to /var/log/syslog I would like it to go to /var/log/routerlogs. Is this possible and if so how would I go about on doing it?


Thanks for your help...

You could try modifying your /etc/syslog.conf to redirect certain messages based on priority or facility.

Trying to get my D-Link to send its log to my Linux box

Hello

I would like to know what you did to make it work Gnarg.
I have enabled the Syslog server and configured the ip of my linix box, in the D-Link router, but no logs shows up anywhere in /var/log.

Hi Arnefar,

Here's what I did to get this working.

In the Router I enabled to send the router logs to my linux box., saved and restarted the router.

I edited /etc/init.d/syslog and /etc/sysconfig/syslog

Look for SYSLOGD_OPTIONS="-m 0" and add -r so it looks like SYSLOGD_OPTIONS="-m 0 -r"

Btw, the -r enables logging from remote machines ( I.E. DLINK Router )

Then I restarted syslog:

sh /etc/init.d/syslog restart

From here all the router logs I notice go into /var/log/messages, /var/log/syslog and /var/log/user.log

I still have not been able to put the router logs in its own place but I like the log to go into user.log since I have other info going there as well.

Hope this helps...

Gnarg
