Arrow How to do this


hi,
I have just installed syslog-ng along with eventlog in two systems in same network.

now i want to make one of the systems in those two as client and the other as server.

I have tried it by making different changes in the configuration files but did not succeed

can any one suggest me the changes that i should make in my configuration files of the client and the server systems.

Any help appreciated,
Prakash.

What OS is the syslog server? What OS is the syslog client?

Here's a link to some basic info that covers both Debian/Ubuntu and Fedora: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Setti...er-44063.shtml

This link is a more detailed how-to regarding syslog set up using Debian. However, it mentions installing a syslog agent on a Windows server: http://www.aboutdebian.com/syslog.htm

Hope this helps.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply, But i did not find any statements regarding changes in configuration files of syslog-ng there.

It is all mentioned about syslog.conf and sysklogd. I want about syslog-ng

I have tried by changing the following in my syslog-ng clients configuration file but these changes did not work.

destination d_mesg { udp("server's ip address" port (514)); };

destination d_auth { udp("server's ip address" port (514)); };


Suggest me any more changes,

Thanks,
Prakash.

Sorry for misunderstanding. Perhaps this link will be more helpful, http://sial.org/howto/logging/syslog-ng/

What OS is the syslog-ng server? What OS and/or app is the syslog client?

CentOS is a rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise and Fedora is an openly-developed project designed by Red Hat. How important is it for you to us syslog-ng? If you go with syslog, then you could use the settings mentioned in http://news.softpedia.com/news/Setti...er-44063.shtml
