I want to centralize log of server on another server(FreeBSD) ! I think I can use syslog but on the server which collects log I don't know how manage the server to listen a specific port in order to receive logs of all server
I have found in a "how-to" that it's necessary to add the -r option in /etc/rc.d/syslogd but where in this file ????
That's probably Linux
in rc.conf define this: syslogd_flags=""
That way it does not get started with -s (secure mode, does not recieve stuff).
On the other machines specify your loghost as reciever like
*.* @ipofyourloghost or whatever you'd wish to log there. It uses port 514 UDP. (That's generic for syslog)
Also don't forget any firewalling thingy's you use.. You must allow the traffic ;-)
