Description Jeff Johnson 2001-11-29 19:25:53 UTC
Can you express an opinion on the following patch? Right
off the top of my head I can't see a security problem, as
the connection will always be one way, and remote
host (I presume) could be made configurable, i.e.
if remote host is configured, then syslogd starts up with
-r, otherwise not.

-r is the switch to enable *recieving* remote logs, not sending of them. So this
makes it listen by default.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-11-29 19:47:59 UTC
Um, yup, my bad.

Any chance this can be made configurable in order to support
thin clients more effectively? I mean something like adding
a remote logging configuration switch, -r enable if
configuration thingy is turned on?

And please remember that I'm just a messenger here, I
don't mean to be tedious.

The remote logging configuration is all done in the config file; that's where
the server is specified, etc.
