Greetings all,

Has anyone attempted to capture messages written to the syslog daemon (ie. 
syslog.log)? We have a network monitoring tool that can give us the status and 
availability of servers on our network. I'd like the ability to write to the 
system console but there doesn't appear to be a port associated with it (and 
this product wants to write to a syslog service associated with a port) so I'm 
writing to the SyslogD Server instead. When I check syslog.log I will see the 
test messages but none of my monitoring software can "see" those messages. Am I 
missing something or is this simply something that cannot be done? Thanks.
