How to log D-Link access point log events in my syslog server?

I have configured syslog server with "remote reception" option to receive remote device log events in my Fedora 6 box. I want to log all my Access Point log events to my syslog server. I have enter my syslog server IP in D-Link Access point device. Is there any other configuration to do to store Wireless Acces point logs in my syslog server.

Sounds like it's all covered..

check your messages file to see if you have entries from your AP.
If not you may need to restart syslog or check firewall settings and open the syslog port inbound.

All settings are correct including firewall.

In /etc/syslog.conf file whet is the facilities.level settings in my syslog.conf file for my D-Link Access Point?

I believe the syslog.conf is for local logging, if you have configured the AP correctly and the Linux server is accepting syslog connections in the /etc/sysconfig/syslog file you should start seeing messages appear in the messages file. What those messages are will depend on the logging level of the AP, not the Linux system.

Hi jools,


AP log messages are logged in /var/log/message.log file. I want to store all my Access Point(AP) logs in a seprate file called /var/log/AP-1.log

Any Help?

OK, so they are logging...

The file is usually /var/log/messages, have you customised the syslog.conf file already?

Not sure at the moment if you can separate the logs from another server, I'll have to do a bit of digging, I'll post back here once I've sorted myself out.

In the mean time, I just found this which seems to be a debian based but the app config examples should help.

I can't seem to find a way of configuring syslog to do what you want but syslog-ng (mentioned above) seems to cover it off.
