Sys Log Viewer
by Christopher Mills


This app allows you to view Sys Log entries sent to the iOS device over a WiFi network. Very useful for seeing remote logging messages for devices such as Routers and remote servers that you aren't always connected to.

You can filter entries and view the details of each message. The app allows you to configure the port number to listen on - ranging from 1024 upwards.

You'll need to edit your syslog.conf (found in /etc/syslog.conf on Unix) and add a line to forward sys log entries to your iOS device. Ensure you either know your iOS WiFi address or you have a DNS entry setup for it.

An example entry in syslog.conf:

*.* @192.168.0.31:5123

You'll need to be root or use sudo to edit this file. Editing the syslog.conf file will require you to restart syslog or reboot the machine.

Restarting syslog:

sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.syslogd.plist
sudo launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.syslogd.plist

Before making changes to the syslog.conf file remember to backup a copy in case you make a mistake.
