Make sure you don't have anything else bound to that port.  Regular syslog
uses it and snmpd will sometimes use it.  Try kicking off "syslog-ng -dv"
and see what the error is.  It may tell you that something is bound there

Dear all

I'm currently testing syslog-ng 1.5.20 on a new Solaris 9
server. When starting up the daemon, it does not bind on
the UDP port 514, so network syslog packets are not processed.
Any idea what I did wrong ?

Thanks and best regards,
