I suspect I'm SOL...(Linksys WAP is Linux I think. They do have the
source code available for D/L)

local0.*                /var/log/local0.log
local1.*                /var/log/local1.log
local2.*                /var/log/local2.log
local3.*                /var/log/local3.log
local4.*                /var/log/local4.log
local5.*                /var/log/local5.log
local6.*                /var/log/local6.log
user.*                  /var/log/user.log

restarted syslog service and then rebooted WAP but all of those files
are still empty  ;-(

Thanks

Craig
