This is reg. Syslog server, We are using GFI events manager to collect all the logs from various devices like win2k3 server, Linux Server, L2 & L3 switches, Routers and firewalls. I am able to capture the Linux server logs means kernal, .info etc in My GFI application. But how do I specifically capture squid, FTP server ( linux server is acting as Proxy and FTP) in My GFI application. to capture the basic logs from linux server i modified /etc/syslog.conf and made entry like
*.* @ my GFI application server IP
If you want the events to go to syslog, you'll have to modify your syslog.conf file to capture those events, or modify your application config to send the events to syslog.
Since you're doing a blanket capture (*.*), modify your squid/ftp configs to send syslog events, of whatever level you'd like.
Depending on what level of events you're capturing, the logs might not show anything. If Squid is only going to send critical errors to Syslog, and you're not having any, then you won't GET anything, even though all is working as it should be.
There are lots of FTP servers for Linux (wuFTP, ProFTPD, vsFTP, etc.). You don't say what you're using, so there's no guidance anyone can give you.
Come on - anyone using squid to setup a proxy service, or setup an FTP service can read a man page.
man vsftpd.conf, search syslog and you will find your vsftpd.conf parameter.
I agree totally...just saying "fix my problem" without doing anything on your side is a bit much to ask.
Go through the config options (you have FULL documentation sets for Squid and VSFTPD), and do what they say. If you still have problems, you need to show the error message(s) you're getting, and what you've done to try to fix them.
