I'm using ubuntu 12.04 64 bit server and I'm trying to get it to receive logs from a pfsense firewall. The firewall is already set up to send logs out on udp port 514, but I'm having problems setting up the server.

I get errors at the beginning of Ubuntu startup. But it disappear fast, because of this I am not able to see the errors. Also while shutting down i see some of the errors. Want to know what it is.
