Logging Linux to a central syslog server
Posted on 2009-06-29
I am trying to setup my linux server to send syslog messages to a centrol syslog server. I have added the central server to the syslog.conf, however, I am only receiving cron messages. I thought I have set this up correctly so that it sent all messages of level info or higher. Can someone look at my config below and tell me why for instance, I am not getting notices of when users connect via SSH, log in etc. I thought I would recieve them with this setup? Basically, I want everything logged and sent to this central server.
# Log all kernel messages to the console.
# Logging much else clutters up the screen.
# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
# The authpriv file has restricted access.
# Log all the mail messages in one place.
# Log cron stuff
# Everybody gets emergency messages
# Save news errors of level crit and higher in a special file.
# Save boot messages also to boot.log
