Hello !!

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

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:

That way it does not get started with -s (secure mode, does not recieve stuff).

On the other machines specify your loghost as reciever

*.*                             @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 ;-)




PS: I am French Yes my english is bad!!!
