In this scenario, we want to store remote sent messages into a specific local file and forward the received messages to another syslog server. Local messages should still be locally stored. Things to think about How should this work out? Basically, we need a syslog listener for TCP and one for UDP, the local logging […]

Clients may (or may not) process and store messages locally. If they do, doesn’t matter here. See recipe Sending Messages to a Remote Syslog Server […]
