I have a device logging to my server but it logs in /var/log/messages as
well as /var/log/pix.log.
here is my syslog.conf
# Log all kernel messages to the console.
# Logging much else clutters up the screen.
# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
# The authpriv file has restricted access.
# Log all the mail messages in one place.
# Log cron stuff
# Everybody gets emergency messages
# Save news errors of level crit and higher in a special file.
# Save boot messages also to boot.log
# Save messages to pix.log
What should I change so that it will only log to /var/log/pix.log.
I'm a little bit confused. We start our machine that is _receiving_ remote syslogs with:
daemon syslogd -r
It can then receive inbound syslog requests from our other nodes. They would have their syslog.conf file set up with lines like:
================================================== # log everything to lager *.* @lager.dfci.harvard.edu ===================================================
In your proposed setup, you're asking to log everything to a file.
## *.* is all sources and all levels. So you could do: *.* /var/log/pix.log
So, what ARE you trying to do? Matt Temple
