This app is absolutely perfect for what I need, until tonight I had never heard of syslog servers but it is exactly what I need… The only problem is I can’t get it working… I’ve obtained the domain name and port from papertrailapp.com ( a syslog company that seems to offer the services I require without charging the earth every month) and put this into the syslog variable in th event watcher setup page but it only seems to log locally…
Papertrail automatically detects new systems when they begin logging. No additional Papertrail configuration is needed. The same destination can be used by many systems.
The fqdn is this: logsx.papertrailapp.com:xxxxx where X is a number
The site also states
Accept unrecognized senders Accepting TCP (TLS), TCP (plain text), UDP
Hopefully I’m missing something obvious and you can point me in the right direction… Or maybe to an alternative syslog provider that definitely works
