Description

This command specifies the hostname or IP address of the log server (syslog-server) to which the router sends log messages. These messages use the standard Unix/Linux syslog facility; there are implementations of this facility for other operating systems (notably Windows NT and Windows 2000).

For syslog configuration on a Unix box, see the /etc/syslog.conf file and the syslogd manpage.
