Suse SSH Log File

I would like to have a separate log file for SSH. Using Suse and it writes everything to /var/log/messages. I have searched for quite a while, and I can't find anything pertaining to how to change this location to what I want. I'm sure there has to be a way.

Does anyone know how to do this, or if it can even be done?

SuSE uses syslog-ng

Hi there,
I'm not familiar with the details, but SuSE (my version is 9.3 I believe) uses the files /etc/sysconfig/syslog and /etc/syslog-ng/ to configure its logging.

Good luck



sles, suse, syslog, syslogng
