3.20.5. LogSock Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This optional parameter specifies what type of socket to use to connect to the syslog server. Allowable values are native, eventlog, unix, inet, tcp, udp, stream, pipe, console. The option inet means to try tcp first, then udp. The default is to use the Sys::Syslog default of “native, tcp, udp, unix, pipe, stream, console”.
Due to limitations in the Sys::Syslog Perl module, if you have multiple Auth-Log SYSLOG or Log SYSLOG clauses and if any one has LogSock defined, they must all have LogSock defined.
