Syslog logs are not being received

Postby baron1234 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 12:09 pm

Hello, everybody,
A device is sent logs to port 1514 of my computer.

But I'm not, getting anything apparently. It is very possible that something in the configuration is not correct. Please help me solve the problem.

these are the steps I have taken:

sudo yum install rsyslog

sudo nano /etc/rsyslog.conf
$ModLoad imtcp
$InputTCPServerRun 1514
$template FILENAME,"/var/log/mylogs/syslog.log

systemctl enable rsyslog

systemctl start rsyslog

netstat --inet -pan | grep 1514
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 19881/rsyslogd
tcp 0 0 ESTABLISHED 19881/rsyslogd

At this point, I'm not getting anything in the mylogs folder.

Your configuratiuon is ready to receive logs but you need to add a line to say where to put received logs.
For example:
*.* /var/log/received.log
