I have a FreeBSD 4.2 box, and it has a log file called \var\log\export.log. Users export files through the web GUI and this log file contains specifics. It contains information such as when the users exported file.
I want to the box to log the auto_export.log file to a remote syslog server, so I tried configuring syslog.d as follows (yes, I made a backup, and restarted syslogd):
Sadly, it doesn't work. I'm guessing that whatever is writing to the export.log file isn't recognized by syslogd as an application. So my question is how do I make syslogd recognize it as a application?
