10.3: Enable remote logging features
Authored by: MacDog on Apr 03, '04 09:46:40AM
I have read all the comments here, but I still can't get remote logging to work under 10.3.3. The installed syslogd seems to match the documentation found under FreeBSD Manual Page but using the -a option to allow for a remote IP adress to use syslog still dont work. I use Firewalk X 2 as a firewall, and I can observe the incoming packets beeing allowed. I've also used EtherReal to capture the actual packets and can observe that they have the right content. Do anyone know wherther there are some other obscure places or settings that needs to be set/changed?

10.3: Enable remote logging features
Authored by: petercrocker on May 31, '04 05:34:57PM

Here's what I used in OS X 10.3.4:

/usr/sbin/syslogd -a* -m 15

-a ip.addr/mask:src-port (the:* means allow any udp source port)
-s doesn't seem to allow any external syslogging, so leave it off
-m is just a marker. there will be a timestamp in your log every 15 min

optionally add -d to run it in debug mode and see what's working or busted.
