I succeed in implementing syslog traces on my device.
But, when I launched it, nothing is displayed. So, i think that it doesn't run well….
One thing i did is to encode thanks to UTF-8 instead of ASCII. May this generate an issue ? I don't know.
If you may help….
what type of Syslog server are you using? Have you tested any other appenders?
I use Linux Syslog. I tried other appender and it succeed (FileAppender).
It seems that you didn't use Linux syslog but you send traces to the local syslog (because of 127.0.0.1). Am I right ? If os, I have to redirect all Syslog traces in your local syslog.
I did use the Kiwi syslog daemon running on a Windows Vista box. Other people have reported using the SyslogAppender successfuly on a Linux box. However that is not the reason why using 127.0.0.1. I did want set a default value and that is 127.0.0.1. It is hard for me to know the IP address of your server in advance ;-)
So you have to set the host of your server, using the host property for the SyslogAppender.
