Hi im trying to configure kiwi syslog server but having issues.

I cant get it to log anything... even with the tool you can get to send test data.

if i run it all locally and use 127.0.0.1 it works...

as soon as i try and use the normal ip address it doesn't log anything.

I have opened the ports etc...

if i use wireshark i can see the data being sent from another server when i hit the test button, but nothing appears in the logs of syslog.

Any ideas whats happening?  basically its refusing to listen to the incoming data?

Did you configure the device you are monitoring to forward the logs to the syslog server?

Damn I feel a fool!  

Kiwi the user interface isnt very streight foward - you have to click the word 'inputs' to type in the IP address, it doesnt look like a clickable box as there is a list directly underneath, DOH!!!...
