syslog -r


How do I start syslog demon to listen port 514? I have a vpn device that sends syslog information to my linux box. The problem I notice the syslogd deamon for remote logging is not on. How do I enable syslogd -r -m 0??

[root@syslogvpn sbin]# syslogd -r -m 0
syslogd: Already running.
[root@syslogvpn sbin]# ps -ef |grep syslogd
root 1855 1 0 04:47 ? 00:00:00 syslogd -m 0

Receiving side:

syslogd -r

/etc/services should have the following entry:
syslog 514/udp

See man syslogd for more info.

These syslogd options (-r, -m 0 etc) are stored somewhere on your system. You don't specify which distro you are using, so I can only give you 2 places to look at:

Suse (8.x): /etc/sysconfig/syslog
or
/etc/init.d/syslog

The last one should give you a good idea where to look for the input file (it might even be hard coded).
