Syslog from RouterOS to FreeBSD

Mon Oct 11, 2004 3:54 pm

I've set the IP address for syslog server for my MT Router box to that of my Freebsd 5.2.1 seerver. Syslogd is running and logging things on the Freebsd box in /var/log but there is not any RouterOS logs there... what else must I set?

I've checked my firewall and used Tourch to see the data going through so I do not think it is that. I suspect I need to put something into the syslog.conf file but what?

Many Thanks

perhaps syslogd has to be startet with "-u" parameter to enable reading from remote sources.
(see man syslogd too)
