Subject UdpAppender uses UdpClient?
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2007 10:21:45 GMT

We're looking to use the RemoteSyslogAppender from a bunch of Windows
services running on the same machine, sending log events to one server
listening to one port.  Looking through the source, RemoteSyslogAppender
inherits from UdpAppender, and UdpAppender uses a UdpClient object.  If
I try to start two applications on the same machine aiming to send log
event to the same remote sys log I get an error saying "only one usage
of socket address is normally permitted".

I've seen this exception before in my own work with sockets, and I got
around it by using a Socket instead of UdpClient, but I suspect you can
set the ExclusiveAddressUse property as well.  I can't see a way of
setting this property through the appender though.

Is there any way I can use multiple UdpAppenders/RemoteSyslogAppenders
sending to the same address/port on the same machine?
