Receive syslog log info from router on iMac (Leopard)

THIS DOESN’T WORK. Logs get confused (logging stops). Haven’t figured out a way to make it *really* work on Leopard.

Receive syslog info from router on iMac (Leopard)

To enable your Leopard system to receive network syslog submissions edit /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ and uncomment the lines specified in the comments so that the end of the file looks something like this.


NB – the NetworkListener is part of the Socket dict entry!!!

Then execute the following commands (wait a few seconds between commands):
sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
sudo launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

That is enough to get an apple base station to dump it’s log into the system log.
