Novell NetWare as a syslog Client
Novell NetWare does not come with build-in syslog client functionality. However, with some
external help Novell log files can be forwarded via syslog. This is the initial document on

The key point to know is that Novell NetWare stores log information in plain text file like
sys$log.err, vol$log.err and tts$log.err. These files are accessible from any system that can connect to
the NetWare file server.

file lines. After the initial forwarding, only new lines are forwarded.
