My farm owner configured the F5 load balancer that I am using to send syslog messages to one of my hosts. however, I can't seem to be able to configure my host to properly log the messages, don't know what I am missing.
The only change I know I should do on the host is:
In /etc/sysconfig/syslog added the -r and -x options
But what else is needed? where do I determine the filename? if I understand correctly, the /etc/syslog.conf file is for client logging, and not for server configuration.
don't know if there is any relevant information in the client configuration, but this is what they sent me:
F5 /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf Changes:
Also, this should not be a firewall issue, as I am able to sniff the traffic on my server and see it coming in at udp 514.
Thanks in advance
