We have a Splunk box set up for syslog message retrieval (among other duties). We want to use a custom port other than UDP/514. Is it possible on a 6509-E running IOS 12.2 to change the destination syslog port?

Thanks in advance!

If you want to change the ports and run different instances of syslog monitor than you try this command switch(config)#logging host X.X.X.X transport udp port ## . This will change the port that the syslog messages are sent on and you will just have to figure out how to filter the different ports on the monitoring end.

Unfortunately, this command structure isn't available in IOS Version 12.2(33)SXH2a on a 6509-E. After logging host x.x.x.x I only have vrf and xml commands available. Thanks though.
