firewall help: want internet syslog to get through to LAN

Message 1 of 1

I plan to have an application running on a remote system

send  UDP syslog messages (default port 514) to my verizon IP where

I expect the MI424-WR Firmware Version: router to 

forward them to host "dahost" which is running a syslog daemon (specifically solarWinds kiwi)


firewall settings: General : typical Security (medium)

Access Control : -none-

forwarding: includes

[x] dahost : Application UDP 514 -> 514 : all broadband devices : Active


Syslog message from another (Mac lion ) host ( ) from within the LAN 

do get to dahost using

syslog -s -r -l 4 "sent trhough LAN -l 4"

Kiwi reports:

2012-04-02 12:43:48  Kernel.Warning Mac.germans syslog[59036]: sent trhough LAN -l 4


However from that same host using the public addres of the router

syslog -s -r -l 4 "sent from -l 4"

do not get to syslogd.



PING ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.946 ms

 1  rtr (  4.168 ms  3.863 ms  1.531 ms


Intestering specifing -d -q 9 ( debug mode , issue 9 queries, ) SOMETIMES results in

1  rtr (98.zzz.yyyxxx) 60 bytes to  4.395 ms  3.978 ms  4.048 ms  0.776 ms  0.742 ms  0.718 ms *  3.822 ms  1.510 ms


 and sometimes

traceroute    -q9 -d  98.zzz.yyyxxx
traceroute to (, 64 hops max, 52 byte packets
 1  rtr (  4.665 ms  1.401 ms  0.789 ms  0.760 ms  0.877 ms  2.942 ms 3.710 ms  1.832 ms


also interesting

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Private message me if you  want rtr's real address .
