    How can I set Tomato ND (teddy_bear mod) to save log files to a USB-attached flash drive? I have my bandwidth info saved there, but want syslog to be saved there too. I don't want to have to setup a syslog server and send it overport 514.

    I've seen possibilities such as copying logging every message nostop, but most preferably I'd like a continuous log (or maybe a log split up every 1000 lines or KB).

    I've searched the forums and google, trying to find a syslogd.confg (or syslog.conf), and even with a "find / -name syslog.conf", nothing turned up. I did find "syslogd" and "messages", but don't know where/how to edit the config of how it saves.

    You could write a script that first tests if the flash drive is mounted and if so, copies the logfile periodically to it...
