    Changing the Syslog UDP Port


    When I configure the syslogd to listen to some port other than 514, say 4444 & if it is configured to forward the messages to another machine, say xyz. It forwards all the messages to port 4444 in machine xyz. But I would like to forward the messages to port 514 in machine xyz. How can I do this.

    so you want to listen to port 4444 and send to port 514, so you don't get any of your logs, you get the logs of other computers on the network? If this is _really_ what you want (doubtful) then you are working in a large business type office. If that is the case, download the source, change the config option it looks for, release the code, and everyone will benefit (if the change makes it into the syslog tree)
    I respectfully decline the invitation to join your delusion.
