Hi all

I understand that it is possible to log session using snort. I have tried to 
log telent session using the following line in the rules file. It works very 

log tcp any any <> $IP 23 (session: printable;)

However when the following line was added to log syslog traffic, snort 
complain that it cannnot find the session file

log udp any any <> $IP 514 (session; printable;)

Is there any thing that I have missed out? If it is not possible to log this 
traffice as a session, is there a way to log the syslog packets? Thanks in
