Not sure, but if it helps here's my syslog.conf. In this setup,
ipmon messages go to /var/log/messages. What does what I can't

BSD: A psychoactive drug, popular in the 80s, probably developed at UC
Berkeley or thereabouts. Similar in many ways to the prescription-only
medication called "System V", but infinitely more useful. (Or, at least,
more fun.) The full chemical name is "Berkeley Standard Distribution".
