Go to /etc/sysconfig/rsyslog and add the "-r" option to the parameters for rsyslogd (as far as I know, the "-r" option has been obsoleted some time ago, and is replaced by 2., so just try or read the manpages). 2. Go to /etc/rsyslogd.conf and let the daemon listen on UDP port 514: $ModLoad imudp $UDPServerRun 514 3. Go to /etc/rsyslog.d and create an empty file. Write this into it: :source, isequal, "sunshine" /var/log/tomato.log :source, isequal, "sunshine" ~ Replace "sunshine" with your routers name, or use its IP. 4. Restart rsyslogd: systemctl restart syslog.service That's it.And don't forget to open port 514 if you are running a firewall on the rsyslog host. It is closed by default.
It shows 514 UDP open. But I still can/t get anything into /var/log/tomato.log. It keeps filling up /var/log/messages, about 2 megs so far today! I'm still missing something. I changed this since the option -r doesn't seem to be used. /etc/sysconfig/rsyslog # Options for rsyslogd # Syslogd options are deprecated since rsyslog v3. # If you want to use them, switch to compatibility mode 2 by "-c 2" # See rsyslogd(8) for more details SYSLOGD_OPTIONS="-c 2" And created this: [bobg@box9 rsyslog.d]$ cat emptyfile # /etc/rsyslog.d/emptyfile :source, isequal, 192.168.1.9 /var/log/tomato.log :source, isequal, 192.168.1.9 ~ Actually I even tried naming it emptyfile.conf out of desperation.
