i have a question about syslog-ng and it's ability to pull from a non syslog
file,

i have a cisco network registrar dhcp server that is looking to 
/var/nwreg2/logs/name_dhcp_1_log (standard location)
on Solaris 2.7

however when i have a source of
source cnr { file("/var/nwreg2/logs/name_dhcp_1_log"); };
nothing gets logged, i did some reading it seems people have tried using logger
to get to these kind of log files (tail -f | logger) however either i am
missing something or it does not work here, anyone have any ideas?
btw, syslog-ng when it starts up gives a EOF error which i am assuming
is because it is expecting the file to never end.

any ideas that anyone has would be appreciated
