I'm trying to set up syslog to accept remote logging. I already have changed the config file and set up the syslogd with "-r m 0" to accept remote logging. Now i need to change the /etc/services file. I know it needs to be: something 514/udp something 514/tcp

Should the something be syslog, Syslog, syslogd, or Syslogd. I'm not sure but I don't have root to test them so I'm having to send a request to get it done and would like it done right the first time.

It should be

syslog 514/udp

but in standard /etc/services it is already set...
