How to enable remote syslog on centos and store data coming in from
one or more devices on your centos machine.
Changes on the centos machine you want to receive syslog data:
(Turn on remote syslog service)
SYSLOGD_OPTIONS=”-r -x m 0″
Set up permissions for each device you want to accept data from
# The plus in front of the IP indicates its a remote device.
# You can have as many devices you want log to the same file. The
entries are prefixed by thier IP or Hostname
# You can use host names if you want, they just need to be able to resolve.
# One last note, I think centos needs tabs in syslog.conf to separate columns not spaces.
