IM_TCP(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		     IM_TCP(8)

NAME
     tcp input module -- syslogd(8) input module used to receive from tcp con-
     nections

SYNOPSIS
     tcp [-a] [-q] [-h host] [-p port]

DESCRIPTION
     tcp input module allows syslogd(8)	daemon to use tcp IPC.

EXAMPLES
     +o	 The following command installs	syslogd(8) daemon and activates	tcp
	 system	accepting remote connections on	local address machinename.ex-
	 ample.com port	3210:

	       syslogd -i 'tcp -h machinename.somedomainexample.com -p 3210'

     +o	 The following command installs	syslogd(8) daemon and activates	tcp
	 system	accepting remote connections on	all local addresses port 3210:

	       syslogd -i 'tcp -p 3210'

     +o	 The following is the similar to the previous, but extracts the	host
	 name from the message:

	       syslogd -i 'tcp -a -p 3210'

     +o	 The following is the same, but	avoids adding full fomain (FQDN):

	       syslogd -i 'tcp -q -p 3210'
