authpriv.* /var/log/secure

mail.* /var/log/maillog

cron.* /var/log/cron

uucp,news.crit /var/log/spooler
# Save boot messages also to boot.log
local7.* /var/log/boot.log
# Save messages to pix.log
local6.* /var/log/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

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
