remote logging


I have web server farm and I am trying to do remote logging using syslogd. I have read that in the syslog.conf file you can change the location of your logs files from a local directory to a remote host by putting @<remote hostname>. The problem is that I can't find any more documentation on how I am to setup the remote host. I have syslogd on both boxes. Am I suppose to change the remote hosts syslong.conf file??

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I managed to find out that the client is sending what looks like the log messages to the remote server cause I keep seeing connections on port 514 to the remote computer but I still do not see any entries in my log files.

Please Help!!!

I figured it out

I had to start the syslog with the -r option
