Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm working with rsyslog through multiple hops. What I want is the following, I do not want the short hostname in the msg I only want the IP. So the server sending the msg I do not want it to add its short hostname to the message being sent I only want the IP of the server.

I'm using RHEL 5.5 with rsyslog

Any ideas?
