I am completely new to OSX server. How do I turn on the syslog service? I also need it to accept connections from remote network switches.
This seems to answer the second part of my question.
I found this article here: http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20060327074531639
It is specifically for 10.4 but if I remember correctly, it applies to the current 10.6 configuration.
I haven't had to setup syslogd on a mac in a while but the steps described seem very familiar. I also don't have an OSX server to test on right now.
