editing syslog to stop a particular daemon logging

Hi there

I get the following message im my messages file 2 or 3 times a second

Dec 4 11:44:18 my-box in.timed[29691]: [ID 927837] connect from localhost

I would like to stop in.timed from logging to syslog altogether as this message is filling up my disk.

I dont want to stop altogether because we need it ....but i would like to configure syslog.conf somehow so that in.timed doesnt log at all

any help on this would be greatly appreciated

There is no such granularity in syslog configuration.

Why are all these connections to in.timed happening ?
