Log stuff showing up in other consoles


Hi all,

I'm getting strange log references, which from doing some searching is apparently guarddog noting a contact rejection from another computer. I'm getting quite a few of these, which I guess I shouldn't be surprised since I'm running rTorrent.

Problem is, I've got a couple of things running in text-only consoles (tty3, and tty4 although tty4 is idle at the moment) and when I go to these consoles, the system will dump lines here and there, just like what I'm getting in my logs from guarddog right into the terminal on top of what I'm working on. As you can imagine, this is a little frustrating.

Anyone know how to get this dern'ed machine to stop raining log entries on my parade?

Here's some of the log entries:

A-ha! You've got me pointed in the right direction now. I don't think that command has completely solved the problem, but may have helped to reduce the flood at least.

While man-ing dmesg, I learned a little about syslogd. I took a look at my syslog.conf file, and discovered a section that may have a lot to do with my problem:
#
# I like to have messages displayed on the console, but only on a virtual
# console I usually leave idle.
#
#daemon,mail.*;\
# news.=crit;news.=err;news.=notice;\
# *.=debug;*.=info;\
# *.=notice;*.=warn /dev/tty8

# The named pipe /dev/xconsole is for the `xconsole' utility. To use it,
# you must invoke `xconsole' with the `-file' option:
#
# $ xconsole -file /dev/xconsole [...]
#
# NOTE: adjust the list below, or you'll go crazy if you have a reasonably
# busy site..
#
daemon.*;mail.*;\
news.crit;news.err;news.notice;\
*.=debug;*.=info;\
*.=notice;*.=warn |/dev/tty5
Now, this does seem accurate because most of the gobbldeegook has been output to tty5. But it seems to spill over onto tty3, tty2, and tty1 although less on it than the others for some reason. I'm wondering if there's something else, such as guarddog or something, that is also outputting to the console.
Is it possible for a program to send its output to just 'console', so that irritatingly enough, it just dumps it into whichever tty I'm working on at the time?

Burning questions. Thank you for responding so quickly!

My syslog.conf looks exactly like yours. Doesn't look like anyone edited your .conf.

I think C console apps tend to use stderr as an output, and is stderr not the current tty?
