>From the syslog.conf man page: "Each block of lines is separated from the previous block by a program or hostname specification. A block will only log messages corresponding to the most recent program and hostname specifications given. Thus, with a block which selects `ppp' as the program, directly followed by a block that selects messages from the hostname `dialhost', the second block will only log messages from the ppp(8) program on dialhost." Which tells me that your config file is only logging data from ppp on 10.61.70.1 to where you want. You should be able to move the +10.61.70.1 before the other program blocks and it should start working as you expect. Note, however, that this will break logging fro slip.log and ppp.log unless you put another + line after it. -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
