How to make Apple Airport wifi routers do remote logging.

This is a blog not related to Oracle products in any way.

Remote logging.
This post is specific to apple Airport Extreme and Express wifi routers. However, in general: if you have multiple (unix/linux) servers, it makes sense to centralise the (sys)logging of these servers, in order to get a better overview on what is happening on these servers. I would want to go as far as saying that if you don’t you are simply not doing it right.

The central logging can be another syslog deamon receiving the logging, but there are many more products who are able to receive logging, like splunk, graylog, logstash and so on. This blogpost is about my home wifi routers, I use the simple and limited Synology “Log Center” daemon.
