Enable Syslog on Smoothwall Express

This doc gives instructions on how to monitor traffic through a smoothwall express installation using Kiwi Syslog daemon for Windows.


Hidden in there are the instructions on SSH'ing into your Smoothie to edit /etc/syslog.conf and adding this line:

kern.* @

[change the to whatever your log machine happens to be]

Then send syslogd a signal to reset itself and read the edited config file:

killall -HUP syslogd

Note: Text editors - Joe is in SmoothWall Express 2 and 3. Jpico was installed on some earlier SmoothWall versions. Or connect w/WinSCP and use it's built in Windows GUI text editor.
