For various reasons, we have a few central syslog servers that are based
on CentOS 6.3, which ships with rsyslog 5.8.x. Our other systems, based
on CentOS 5.x, have an older version 3 available. It was decided that I
would compile the lot and test it out first.
I've been able to compile it just fine, but for some bizarre reason that
I'm unable to figure out, rsyslog will not log over the network, but
The compile flags:

I read the manpage, there doesn't appear to be a special flag to set
other than "-c 5" to allow for that. The configuration syntax for this
The log goes to file no problem, but is not sent to the internalhost --
I tested this otherwise, this works with the stock, supplied RPM on
CentOS 6 (no config changes).

configuration change (I can't remember, but it had to do with using
"*"). So for now, I would like to solve this little problem.
It's possible we will just "roll our own" under /usr/local and keep it
all standard -- I would probably go with the latest/greatest version,
provided it didn't create more configuration issues for what the dev's
I'm stumped as to what the issue could be. Anyone have any ideas?
