  • Messages sent through UDP get lost, consider using TCP
  • We are sending everything not encrypted! You may want to use a tunnel such as SSL.
  • Submit bugs at this project's Sourceforge Bug reporting system at: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=add&group_id=25741&atid=385117 You may also report them directly to the authors; send an email to core.devel.alat@corest.com, describing the problem the most you can, containing also machine description, hardware description, the configuration file (/usr/local/etc/syslog.conf), the OS description, and the invoking command line. The more you describe the bug, the faster we can fix it.
