Send syslogs out a different interface other than LAN?
I have searched and searched, I cannot find this information.
Is it possible to send syslog data out a different interface othe than LAN?
I have an internal IF, em0, it is WAN
Then I have an OEM i340 card with 4 ports,
igb0 - LAN
igb1 - OPT1
igb2 - OPT2
igb3 - OPT3
Can I send the syslog data out to one of the OPT links?
@buggz I don't think it works quite like that...
My understanding is that you set a host to send syslogs to, and if the host is local, no matter what interface it's plugged into, pfsense knows how to find it and send the data file(s).
So, I think the answer to your question is yes, but no. Because you don't send data out the specific interface, like you said. But, rather to a host that pfsense can find. I believe you can even send syslog files to truly remote servers, out on the internet, but I don't know exactly how that works.
Thanks for this!
I have LAN as 192.168.2.2
I will make OPT1 - 192.168.3.3
I will configure a quick test box on the ...3.3 network and see if it works.
Sigh, it's beyond me to get this to work.
All I want is for syslog-ng ONLY traffic to go out a network port other than LAN.
I'm quite sure that syslog traffic follows the normal routing rules.
If you're telling pfSense to log to 192.168.3.3 , and ie. OPT1
has the IP 192.168.3.1/24 , then the syslog packages will be sent out of OPT1.
But all traffic to 192.168.3.3 would go out of OPT1 (best route) , not only syslog trafic
