    Syslogs not forwarding correctly

    I have syslogs that need to be forwarded to a remote syslog server. I have configured syslog.conf to forward them correctly, and they are not being blocked by any firewalls. The syslog.conf lines that I edited read as follows.

    *.alert "at"ipAddressHere
    *.auth "at"ipAddressHere
    local0.* "at"ipAddressHere

    Any ideas on how to get these logs forwarded to the right IP address? Thanks.

    Have you set up the remote server's syslog to accept the incoming syslog messages? You need to edit rsyslog.conf and uncomment one of these:
    # Provides UDP syslog reception
    #$UDPServerRun 514
    # Provides TCP syslog reception
    #$InputTCPServerRun 514
    Then restart the syslog daemon - service rsyslog restart
