configuring /etc/syslog.conf to send all syslog messages to remote syslog server running on non default port is not working.
I also verified from tcpdump didn't see any syslog messages sent
Whereas , It works well on "*.* @10.102.77.118 "
Went through etc/syslog.conf man page also.
Request for your help, Am i missing some configuration?
It probably depends on what distro and specific syslogd version you're using, but yeah on my system (CentOS5) it sure looks like there's no support at all for alternate UDP ports... It says in the man page it only uses the "/etc/services" entry for "syslog" to determine the port to both listen on and send to... So, I guess you could kluge around the issue by modifying that file to reflect the port# you want it to use...
Yeah, then short of hacking the code yourself or porting a replacement syslogd with alternate port support, I think your only real option is the "/etc/services" kluge I mentioned...
