Could you please post instructions on how I would setup my DI-604 so that it
sends log records to "Syslog port 514." The only log settings available are
for entries regarding
"SMTP Server / IP Address" and "Email Address."
Again, I just wanted to state that I can receive log files via E-mail, but
have been unable to configure the Log settings to be viewed by WallWatcher.
