    regarding syslog

    Hi all
    i have configured syslog-ng for my centralised logging.But i also want to keep my syslog service on in order to get my maillogs.But when i start syslog-ng then i don't get my maillogs even the syslog service is on.This is because syslog-ng is already using udp port 514.so i need to know to change the syslog port,means it shud listen on a different port.Kindly help

    regards
    love wadhwa

    You need to permanently disable regular syslog and permanently make syslog-ng take over as your syslog server.

    Use the chkconfig commands to do this after your next reboot.

    Code:
    # chkconfig syslog off
    # chkconfig syslog-ng on
