Post #2 of 4
Ok, so I acted in haste. Just after sending this message I found what I think is the answer. I searched for /syslog in the man page without result. But if I searched for log, I would have found this:
# man conserver
Reformatting page. Please Wait... done
conserver - console server daemon
-u Send unloved console output to conserver's
stdout (which, in daemon mode, is redirected to
the logfile). This applies to all consoles to
which no user is attached, independent of
whether logging of individual consoles is
enabled via conserver.cf entries.
-Ulogfile Copy all console data to the ``unified'' log-
file. The output is the same as the -u output,
but all consoles, not just those without a user,
are logged. Each line of output is prefixed
with the console name. If a user is attached
read/write, a `*' is appended to the console
name, to allow log watching utilites to ignore
potential user-introduced alarms.

Subject: syslog facility and conserver
I am about to configure Conserver 8.1.14 on Solaris. I will be using it to control the ports on several Cyclades TS2000's. Currently we are using conserver 7.x on FreeBSD, which I did not setup.
I am interested in configuring conserver to log messages from console clients which write to the console. As I understand it, conserver holds open the port of any device in the configuration file. Does it also listen on these ports, and can it write output to syslog? If so, what are the configuration parameters?
I hate to ask questions to which the answers are easily available in the MAN pages, but I could not easily find these answers and the boss awaits results. I even looked over my accumulation of email from users [at] conserver with no luck.
Thanks for your help.
