remote logging to freeBSD

Fri Jun 23, 2006 10:51 am

Do I need to install a deamon on my freeBSD box to have remote logging working?

I've tested with MT deamon on my windows box just for test purposes, but now I want to have it on my freeBSD box.

syslogd comes standard with every installation of FreeBSD, and it's enabled to start at boot by default. Just make sure that you don't use the "-s" command line option to syslogd, as this disables remote logging. See the syslogd man page for details.
