Hi All, 

I am on Cent OS 7 and installed nxlog to forward the /var/log/messages and /var/log/secure to my logging server. When I start its starting fine and in logs I am gettting weird log which I am not able to solve. 

ERROR

2017-10-19 13:32:16 ERROR om_tcp detected a connection error;End of file found

Selinux and Firewall is turned off in my machine. And remote server is listenting on the port 12225 and that can be reachable from this machine without any issues. Can you help me with what I can do to solve this issue. 

 

Thanks in advance

Answer (1)

End Of File found (EOF) in this context means that the remote server is closing the connection.

    I have no idea what your remote server is (I assume it isn't nxlog) so can't help you there. You should check on the server side why it is closing the TCP connection.
