    ----
Hello all,
A Newbie here and apologies in advance if ask ask silly questions..

I've been given the job of ensuring our webhosting infrastructre is secure and am learning more each day. All my firewalls are now installed - by a 3rd party security company.

However, I've installed Red hat Linux 7.1 and want to set it up as a syslog server. Mainly capturing logs from a cisco pix 515 firewall.

Any ideas on the best way to tackle this would be much appreciated.

Thanks

p.s. BTW great forum (I've been lurking for a while) Question

Well syslog is very versatile..

It's a great tool for security, especially if you log everything to a remote machine.
