Hi all. My question is a little off topic, but hopefully someone will be
kind enough to lend a hand.

I am in the process of actually performing some intrusion detection, using
Snort, ACID, etc. and am having some degree of difficulties with Syslog.
What I would like to do is have syslog messages which originate from a
specific host, put in a specific logfile for insertion into the snort
database by logsnorter.  How would one configure syslog.conf to force all
messages coming from say host1 into a particular file ex. /var/log/host1.log
