I have the following syslog

Feb 24 08:01:04 28: Feb 24 08:01:03.674 CET: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: 
Configured from console by xxxxxx on vty0 (
filter f_switches          { netmask(; };

But the filter f_switches matches it, why is that ?

The only place I can see that it could mask is in the 'vty0 
but I thought that the netmask was suppose to match in the hostname field 
and not the message

I looked at http://www.balabit.com/products/syslog_ng/reference/x567.html
but there the netmask filter isn't described.
