Hi there,

 I've tried to get my NeXtStep 3.3 Cube to log to my logserver using the @host syntax in /etc/syslog.conf but on boot syslog complains it doesn't know the host ( even if I put an IP). Surely there must be some way of doing this without restarting syslog once the system is up? Maybe it needs a arp-ip table ? ( /etc/ethers ? )
NeXT Cube 040 (NeXTSTEP 3.3), SUN SparcStation5 (NeXTSTEP 3.3), SGI Indigo2 R10000 (IRIX 6.5.22), SGI VSW320 (Windows 2000/Slakware 9.1)
