What is Bind in graylog


(seshagiri) #1

I am able to get log messages in Graylog. before that i have launched one syslog UDP Input and in that i have mentioned GraylogServer IP in Bind address field. What does this mean? Can i have 0.0.0.0 in bind address as well? Little bit Confusing. Please give a brief analisys. Thanks in advance

Hello @seshagiri,

bind 0.0.0.0 means any system can send to this input.
if you define an address like 192.168.178.5 only this host is accepted at this input.

let me correct you just a little.

if you bind one input to 0.0.0.0 it will listen on any network interface and all networks the Graylog server is corrected to. On the other hand, binding to a specific IP will let the input listen only on that IP and Port.
