Is there a way to setup a syslog server behind cable modem w/dynamic IP? On a Mac?

Heh. Of Course, on a Mac. Anyway, I would like to have my clients Sonicwall ProVX dump its logs into a syslog server in my home office for analysis. It can run on Mac or Linux. i would prefer a graphical interface as most syslog and syslogd apps I've seen are command line and confusing at best.

I have at my disposal a PC (Win 2K Pro), a linux server (mandrake) and another linux box (Red Hat). I also have a PB 667 TiBook, and a G4 Cube (OS X 10.2.4/OS (9.2.2 respectively). We are behind a Linksys wireless router connected to Comcast Digital Cable.

Any help from my new friends here?

this is a great solution. I just hope i can get a way to use something other than my TiBook running OS X to receive them. I take it with me so, its a last option.

Any other solutions for Linux or OS 9 maybe? And does anyone have experience with Comcast specifically as to whether this is a 'server' to them?

You could ask the Linux folks. Dont think there is a solution for OS 9 since its not built on *nix. What about using the Cube?
