I'm trying some stuff with syslog-ng 1.9.9. Is it possible to start the 
syslog-ng daemon when one of the remote hosts to which messages have to be  
send is not reachable?
it seems not to be the case, but my config might be a little bit too thin...

I have two destinations for my logs, one is on the local disk, the other is 
a host in the network. It seems that when the host is not available 
syslog-ng won't start, although it should better start logging to the local 

What happens when the remote host connection gets broken while syslog-ng is 

thx for any pointers ...
