Syslogs Node in LEM using wrong IP

Overview

The way the LEM receives syslogs may cause the expected IP address to be different than the IP address used in the LEM.

Environment

All LEM Versions

Detail

The LEM's syslog collector is set to use the UDP source address of incoming syslogs rather than the IP address or hostname in the syslog message. This normally does not pose a problem except when relaying syslog messages or using a node with multiple ip addresses. If possible, IP Spoofing will need to be used to correct the Node IP.
