doing a netstat -an i see that syslog is listening in UDP port 514.....i am

i checked the rc.conf but there is nothing there.....what do u recommend? to
disable it or to leave it?
I do not use the machine as a remote syslog server so i cant see the
use.....but who knows..

 From syslogd(8):
"-s      Operate in secure mode.  Do not log messages from remote
         machines.  If specified twice, no network socket will be opened
         at all, which also disables logging to remote machines."
So 'syslogd_flags="-ss"' can be added to /etc/rc.conf.

BTW: It can be written like 'syslogd_flags="-s -s"' to your /etc/rc.conf

Both are perfectly valid.
