ReadyNAS Syslog-er-nator

I did this on a ReadyNAS Pro, it will probably work on an NV as well.  Remember, enableing root ssh access on your ReadyNAS may void support from NETGEAR.
 
Simply put, I needed a syslog server and my NAS has a ton of CPU and RAM, not to mention storage, so I figured this would be an awesome thing to use... besides, I already have it running 24x7 and who wants to spin-up another server?
 

Setup on the ReadyNAS
Code / commands will be  written like this in the examples below.  If you need to change input on something I have italicized it.
1.) Enable SSH root access (You can find this on the ReadyNAS website.  Installing the add-on is outside the scope of this document.  If you can't install an add-on for your ReadyNAS, you probably shouldn't try this project.)
2.) login to the ReadyNAS via ssh (hint:  ssh -l root IP-ADDRESS) The root passord is the current "admin" password for the RADIator interface.
3.) apt-get update
4.) apt-get install syslog-ng
5.)  vi /etc/default/syslog-ng  remove the hash (#) before CONSOLE_LOG_LEVEL=1 (feel free to add any config items you want at this point, but for a quick and dirty this will do the job.)
6.) /etc/init.d/syslog-ng stop
7.) vi /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf8 remove the hash before udp(), change use_dns(no) to use_dns(yes)
8.) useradd news
9) chmod 665 /var/log/syslog
10.) /etc/init.d/syslog-ng start
Congrats!  You now have a listening syslog server on your ReadyNAS.  Now to test your setup - 
On the ReadyNAS (from the root ssh terminal)  tail -f /var/log/syslog  
From a terminal prompt on a *nix (Even OS X) machine do this:
nc -w0 -u 192.168.1.100 514 <<< "hello syslog server I think I love you"   Remember to change the IP address to the one you use for your ReadyNAS server but do leave port 514 listed after the IP (It's the default port for syslog.)
Look at the terminal window on the ReadyNAS and you should see hello syslog server I think I love you on the screen.

Some extra awesome
I found an add-on called phpLogCon on the ReadyNAS site. It's a really great log viewer and has a lot of amazing tools built into it.  You have filters, click down data, mouse-over lookups on IPs, etc.  

Now point some of your servers and systems at this thing... 
It's great, and you should start adding in your network devices and other systems.  Enjoy!
