I'm feeling like I've overlooked the obvious, but I can't figure out how to get my Arch Linux server, which uses
systemd, to receive and log
syslog messages from a remote system.
I have a Cisco 678 DSL modem and a DD-WRT WAP, and both can be configured to send syslog-format messages to some other machine. I'd like that machine to be my Arch Linux server.
I've googled around, and all I find is that "systemd replaces syslog", or that I no longer need to run
syslog or something equally irrelevant to my question.
I have asked on the Arch forums and gotten no relevant answers. I've installed syslog-ng just to listen on UDP port 514. syslog-ng writes messages from my Cisco 678, and a DD-WRT WAP I've got. Unfortunately, the messages don't end up in systemd's journal, but rather in flat files. So, no exact solution, but something of a workaround. I'd rather have the syslog messages in the journal, not in flat files.
