Re: Logwatch report on another machine?

Fedora uses syslogd to provide a syslog service.
The default configuration of syslogd  rejects messages from remote systems.

To configure a Fedora system to accept log messages from other systems
on the network, edit the file /etc/sysconfig/syslog.
You must use root privileges to edit the file /etc/sysconfig/syslog.
Add the option -r to the SYSLOGD_OPTIONS:


Restart the syslogd service to apply the change:

su -c '/sbin/service syslog restart'

By default, the syslog service listens on UDP port 514.
