Do a sockstat |grep 514 and see what's sitting on that port. Also, "can't open /dev/klog (16)" is another problem. That device is the kernel log device so syslog can see kernel messages. Syslog may not be too happy about that either. You might check and see if you have a klog in /dev -- Micheal Patterson TSG Network Administration 405-917-0600 Confidentiality Notice: This e-mail message, including any attachments, is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential and privileged information.
