Can I log DHCP… forever?

  • It seems the log file /var/log/dhcpd.log is overwritten everyday. What would be the best way to get this to rotate, so I can have DHCP logs for-ev-er?

  • Set up a syslog server and configure the pfSense to send the DHCP logs to it.

  • Just in case noobs like me find this:

    I setup syslog for remote on a linux box (by adding a '-r' flag in its config), then in pfSense 1.2.3 I went to Status->System Logs->Settings, entered in the linux box's IP, and checked 'Everything'. If you check 'Everything' and another box, you'll receive two of the same message.
