I have a remote server with rsyslog on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. It’s successfully getting logs from Raspbian, Ubuntu 16.04/18.04, and Windows Server 2019. For some reason I’m having trouble getting logs from IPFire r146.
From the command line, I can use logger to get entries on the remote syslog server, via UDP or TCP. But the only IPFire logs that make it to the remote server are syslogd restarts, and only if I have it set to use UDP. There are a lot of IPFire logs not getting forwarded! Since logger works over UDP or TCP, I’m inclined to think it’s not a firewall problem, but I’m running out of ideas on what to try.
