10.4: Enable remote logging in 10.4
Authored by: sjk on Mar 31, '06 12:59:28PM

A bit of followup:

The local4 change to syslog.conf is an application/host-specific modification. It'll be ineffective unless something generates syslog messages for it (e.g. the firewall mentioned in the original hint you referred to).

You could run "Go to Folder..." [shift-command-G] from Finder, type /System/Library/LaunchDaemons to open that folder (or, "open ..." it from Terminal), then drag/drop to whichever writable location you want to save a backup copy. Saving it on the Desktop is probably not the best choice.

It's not necessary to type the full pathname for launchctl paths. Also, restarting the syslog daemon can be accomplished by sending it a SIGHUP (e.g. "killall -HUP syslogd).

Peter Borg's Lingon is a nice GUI for creating/controlling launchd config files.
