syslog-ng Premium Edition


7.15.1. tcp(), tcp6(), udp(), and udp6() destination options The syslog-ng Premium Edition 7 Administrator Guide


The tcp(), tcp6(), udp(), and udp6() drivers are obsolete. Use the network() source and the network() destination instead. For details, see Section 6.5, network: Collecting messages using the RFC3164 protocol (network() driver) and Section 7.8, network: Sending messages to a remote log server using the RFC3164 protocol (network() driver), respectively.

To convert your existing tcp(), tcp6(), udp(), udp6() source drivers to use the network() driver, see Procedure, Change an old destination driver to the network() driver.
