I've considered attempting to config a 4801 with a hard drive as a loging
server.  If you are worried about the read-write mounted filesystem becoming
corrupt, that will be a chance on anything in the same box.  Seems like a
syslog server is the better option .. Get the logs OFF the box .. Just build
one inexpensive enough not to be a big (financial) issue.  Velcro the 4801
to the current router, and call it an upgrade! :-)

Subject: [m0n0wall] logfiles without syslog server


hi there,


a customer requires logfiles even after a reboot or a crash (whyever...).
there isn't any chance for a syslog server.  so how could i save the
logfiles? i'm thinking of saving them on floppy, hdd or cf card, that would
be pretty easy but a system crash would probably corrupt the read-write
mounted filesystem...

has anybody spend some thoughts on this?
