I had complained about a flood of error messages being continuously printed out every time a print job was sent to the USB-printer attached to my Asus AC56U router with merlin-378.55_beta1 . Yesterday, after I had reverted to the official asuswrt firmware to troubleshoot the printer-sharing feature, I used nmap on my laptop to see the open common ports on the clients on my network: Code: # nmap -T4 -F 192.168.1.0-2 The router displayed two ports related to the printer service: Code: 192.168.1.1 Host is up (0.0065s latency). Not shown: 94 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 53/tcp open domain 80/tcp open http 139/tcp open netbios-ssn 445/tcp open microsoft-ds 515/tcp open printer 9100/tcp open jetdirect Anyway, long story short, I had been using the socket://192.168.1.1:9100 path to the printer; changing the configuration on my laptop (CUPS-server) to point to lpd://192.168.1.1:515/AUTO finally resulted in SUCCESS!

It can be very beneficial for system administrators and network administrators, especially, to log system messages from other machines on the network to a centralized hub. Fedora 20 uses rsyslog as the default syslogd service; this allows administrators to configure remote logging. I'll be detailing the necessary configuration steps of rsyslog in Fedora 20 to allow logging messages from a DD-WRT router. This will entail Edit /etc/rsyslog.conf Set up firewall rule to allow incoming connection to server Configure DD-WRT router to send syslogd messages to our server rsyslog server Our server will be the Fedora 20 machine. There are two configuration files in the /etc/ directory that are of interest to us: /etc/rsyslog.conf /etc/sysconfig/rsyslog However, the latter file is not useful anymore as it states: # Options for rsyslogd # Syslogd options are deprecated since rsyslog v3. # If you want to use them, switch to compatibility mode 2 by "-c 2" # See rsy
