    I have a 806 that is getting its wan ip via dhcp from my cable provider

    I'm wanting to use a syslog app to capture info off the wan interface, but
    when configing it, the expected syntax is looking for hostname or and ip

    Since my ip can change i can't really tell it to log the ip address..

    is this where the hostname is useful? or can i tell it to log Ethernet1?


    yeah i'm new..

  2. Configuring which, the syslog application, or the router to send to it?
    If it's the router, then any address you might need to supply would be the
    address of the syslog server, which isn't changing.

    AFAIK, your average syslog server isn't terribly fussed about the source
    of, or tha addresses in the contents of, the packets addressed to it. You may
    need to tell it to accept logging from remote hosts, but generally not down
    to individual addresses.

    Colour me confused perhaps, in need of more detail.
