I have a standard install of honeyd from Ubuntu repositories.
Honeyd is saving logs in two files:
I have been trying to setup rsyslog to forward all logs from honeyd.log to a remote server and it is proving impossible.
My /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf looks like this:
On my remote server I have created /var/rsyslog.d/honeyd.conf as so:
if $programname contains 'honeyd' then /var/log/honeyd.log
With this setup I get all the daemon logs for honeyd on the remote server (honeyd start stop) and arp reply packages for first time communication with a honeyd honeypot. However, logs from honeyd.log are not forwarded.
I have tried with UDP/TCP, making sure syslog has access to honeyd.log by adding the syslog user to the honeyd group but I just cant get it to work.
TCPdump confirms that logs from honeyd.log are not being sent.
honeyd.log entries look like this:
2013-07-10-16:31:07.5939 icmp(1) - sourceip destip: 8(0): 84
2013-07-10-16:31:08.5951 icmp(1) - sourceip destip: 8(0): 84
Does anyone know what I am missing? Thanks for any help in advance.
