Re: syslog (WAS: chroot'ed environment?)

Actually, it is exactly what I have done yesterday. It is pretty easy (check the
INET_SYSLOG define from BSD's libc/syslog.c) and it works very well. I didnt 
have to change anything from what I installed previously. (syslogd, /dev/syslog
or whatever.)

I didnt like very much the idea of putting /dev/syslog in the ftp area, 
so I choose to do this.

The only thing that bothers me is that I didnt want syslogd to listen on its
UDP port, but i guess I will just check the address of the incoming packets
against the loopback address. (Didn't try that yet, thougth.)


More than a year ago I picked up this hack on the TIS fwtk maillist.
It disables the TIS syslogd from listening to the UDP port.
