Hi All

I am using this as my conf file for my syslog-ng 1.6.3 w/ libol-0.3.13
to gather logs from cisco. But it is not logging. I am running it on
Solaris 9. Notice I can get the log on local7 that points to
/var/log/cisco IF I use Solaris's syslogd

options { sync (0);
          time_reopen (10);
          log_fifo_size (1000);
          long_hostnames (off);
          use_dns (yes);
          use_fqdn (yes);
          create_dirs (no);
          keep_hostname (yes);

source net { udp (ip( port(514)); };

# local7.crit;local7.warn;local7.info;local7.debug      /var/log/cisco

filter f_cisco { facility(local7) and level(debug...emerg); };
destination d_cisco { file("/var/log/cisco" create_dirs(yes)); };
log { source(net); filter(f_cisco); destination(d_cisco); };

My snoop/tcpdump gets the SYSLOG pkts fine. Any idea why is it not
writng the log with syslog-ng but ONLY with syslogd? I never run both
daemons at the same time

Thanks for the help/suggestion
