SUMMARY: turning off console error messages

First I want to thank everyone for the help.

I still haven't had a chance to check this out yet.

For the mean time I just used SSH to access my system.
Telnet will work also.  My system is setup to only send messages to the serial
Telnet/SSH connection doesn't show the messages.

***My Original message
How the heck do you turn off those darn error messages that popup at the
console (local).


Everyone is saying check out syslog.conf

***msgs from folks

Edit the /etc/syslog.conf file (and then restart syslogd).

The man page should help, but trial and error are my best

process and generally I prefer that they be sent elsewhere

so that they're captured somewhere

check /etc/syslog.conf for 'console'

Change /etc/syslog.conf and then do a "kill -HUP" on the syslogd process


Take care
