quite likely to be selinux getting in the way. check the syslog-ng faq, and also run "dmesg" and look for selinux in there (will start "avc" and mention things like "contexts"). conventional solution is to disable selinux...

btw, you *really* should also check out splunk...

Hi acid_kewpie,

Thanks for the reply, i managed to start syslog-ng on port 514 using tcp, I'ved discovered that SELinux is causing the problem no to bind on tcp port, many thanks for the information.

CHEERS! =)
