I want to change port 514 to some other port, is it possible?


#1

Hey folsk,

I want to use a different port apart from 514 as we have some different service utilising that port, can you guys help me with steps to do it?


#2

Hey @Jack, Sorry to say, but changing the log forwarding port from 514 to any other is not possible.

Thanks @Stephanie, however, could you help me with a command to check which service is currently running on a particular port?

Hi @Jack - the command you are looking for:

$ netstat -auntp | grep <PORT_NUMBER>

or, to check a list of all services and their respective ports:

$ netstat -auntp | grep LISTEN
