Summary0001489: Remote syslog not working
DescriptionI have a windows box configured as a syslogger on port 514 which I know to be working correctly.

I have a endian fw box (virtulaized on vmware workstation with 2 network interfaces - green [] and red []). On Endian I have set the syslog settings to Remote with the ip address of the syslogger

I am not recieving any syslog message from the Endian box.... I can ping the syslogger from the Endian box no problem....I have only one firewall rule which is allow any to any.

It's working for us with linux boxes.

It's UDP, are you aware of that?

Can you capture traffic on your windows box in order to check if syslog packets arrive? They should..

Did not try to receive packets on a windows event logger. However that should also work.

I have the same problem as suk1. Have a centos 4.7 box that I log too. Use to work with Endian 2.1.2 but no with 2.2 rc3. I have restored from a 2.1.2 backup don't know if that might be the problem

same problem too on a fresh installation of 2.2RC3 (no update, no restore)
Syslog works fine on previous versions
One green, same lan than my syslog windows station

After working deeper into the problem I could solve the issue by the following:

- mkdir /var/efw/ha (wasn't there before)
- echo "HA_ENABLED=off" >> /var/efw/ha/settings
- chown -R nobody:nobody /var/efw/ha

Maybe it helps someone else...

wow. nice one!

Seems that in last time we have more bugs which happen only on versions with some enterprise parts missing

However this is a really nice one. The problem is within the RecursiveNull class of Cheetah.

Your workaround certainly works also.
