Recently I started testing NXLog and was tryingto simulate log forwarding to other syslog servers. My logs are stored in *.log files and I want to forward them to another syslog destination. But after so many attempts, I still fail, and my logs are not forwarded. I also tried writing to another file using om_file but that does not help me as well. The NXLog's logs are of not much help, as It is stuck with just "Connecting to X.X.X.X:514 and never does anything ahead of it. IT does not show any warning / error as well.
How do I investigate, what went wrong.
I am on Ubuntu 16.04 with NXLog CE 2.10.2150 downloaded from this portal.
Below is my configuration,
path infile1 => outtcp1, outfile1
I have checked on the network side, did Telnet (for TCP) and NC (for UDP) everything works fine, even rsyslog is able to forward data but NXLog fails.
