I need to write a Perl script (to run on a Linux server node) that intercepts all syslog messages from a Linux client node, e.g. generated from its firewall, etc.
1) Usually, with log generating clients, you can redirect where they send the log entries to the syslog server via the syslog server's IP address. But for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to configure Red Hat Linux's firewall to do so. I type in system-config-securitylevel, and I cannot find where I would be able to redirect syslog traffic. Any suggestions on how to configure the firewall to do what I want?
2) What are examples of other programs that generate syslog? How do I configure them?
