rsyslogd doesnt seem to listen on all interfaces


Hi,

I'm running ubuntu 9.10, the box has 2 network interfaces. I've got rsyslogd running on this box also. On one of the interfaces I have a VoIP ATA which I've configured to send syslog messages to the ubuntu box, however they're not coming up in the log file (I've configured syslogd.conf to capture logs for local2.debug and local3.debug).

rsyslogd seems to be working ok for data coming through on the other interface, but not this one. I've verified the ATA is sending data by using tcpdump and have confirmed it's using local2.debug and local3.debug.

Can anyone offer any suggestions? It seems perhaps it might not be listening on all interfaces? rsyslog is running with the -c4 switch.

check "netstat -plnu" as root to see who is listening for what on UDP on that machine.

Hi,

Should've thought of checking the obvious

I think what's happen after my last dist. upgrade, rsyslogd has replaced syslogd, and this wasn't set up to support remote logging.

I've fixed that up now.

Thanks!
