sylogd not logging

From: itchibahn <>
Date: Sun, 7 Sep 2003 19:50:42 -0500
I used to run 4.6 where syslogd worked fine with cisco 7507, as5300, and 
max4048.  Eversince I've installed 5.0-RELEASE, I used exact same config as 
old, but can't get it working.  Please help.  The following is configs:

*.err;kern.debug;auth.notice;mail.crit          /dev/console
*.notice;kern.debug;;mail.crit;news.err /var/log/messages
security.*                                      /var/log/security;                         /var/log/auth.log                                       /var/log/maillog                                        /var/log/lpd-errs                                        /var/log/xferlog
cron.*                                          /var/log/cron
*.emerg                                         *
local0                                  /var/log/routers/nas1.log
local1                                  /var/log/routers/gw-kln.log
local2                                  /var/log/routers/max3.log
local3                                  /var/log/routers/max2.log
local4                                  /var/log/routers/max1.log
*.*                                             /var/log/all.log

syslogd_flags="-a *"
#syslogd_flags="-a"       ;  also tried this

Instead of using *, try just specifing the dns name of one of your 
routers that you would like to log. 


If you get syslog messages with this, then try adding additional -a flags 
for each of your routers. 

syslogd_flags="-a -a ..." 

You may want to send a message to informing them 
that remote logging isn't working for you.
