Below is the example, which means all the message would be transferred to the remote host as defined as loghost in /etc/hosts file
But my question is in which file by default they would be written in remote host? Thanks! :-)
# cat /etc/syslogd.conf

*.debug  <TAB>  @loghost

Open in new window

    Accepted Solution

    In the file specified in the /etc/syslogd.conf on the remote host.

    Normally its in the /var/log directory.
