Enable remote logging (syslog) in 10.5
Authored by: pediger on Apr 21, '09 12:43:54PM
Facility security (13), Severity info (6) so my guess that my D-Link router is naming its syslog facility "security" but it is still not writing to the router.log file even after editing the syslog.config to point security.* to /var/logs/router.log.
Try remoteauth.* instead of security.*. I recently had the same trouble routing my D-Link log to a Tiger machine. Rather than "security," Wireshark reports:

Facility: LOGAUDIT - log audit (13) and Level INFO - informational (6)

so like you I was trying logaudit.* and audit.*, etc.

If you look at /usr/include/sys/syslog.h you can see how the numbers (13 in this case) map into the facility text codes (remoteauth).
