Enable remote logging (syslog) in 10.5
Authored by: adinb on Jul 22, '10 02:28:04PM

I have a netgear router that I'm trying to pull in its logs to a snow leopard blackbook. All the basics are working, but I have a little bit of wonkiness that I'm not sure how to fix.

After looking at my tcpdumps, I noticed that it's using a facility originator of 4 (which maps to 'auth').

Everything from my netgear now goes into secure.log (as it's supposed to). Is there any way to re-route the netgear syslog messages into its own file (i.e. netgear.log) without hi-jacking *all* of the local security messages that *should* be going to secure.log?
