Thank you for that link. Looks like I have some reading to do. I do know 
they have it enabled on the production servers I will be duplicating, so 
I'll have to figure out whether we need it on the development and test 
servers or not.

I also have a problem with syslogd. I added '-r' to SYSLOGD_OPTIONS in 
/etc/rc.d/init.d/syslog, but after a restart it still won't accept 
network traffic, and that flag doesn't show up in the command line in 
the 'ps ax' dump. What do I have to do to enable traffic into syslogd 
from my firewall and other servers?

This machine will be replacing an older Slackware 7 server once I get 
the wrinkles worked out.

Thank you,

Bob McConnell
