Subject Exception when running a programatically configured RemoteAppender
Date Mon, 04 Nov 2013 10:19:00 GMT
Hi all,

I'm trying to programatically configure an RemoteAppender on the client
side, but I end up in an exception (see below). Apparently the callback
is not set, and looking through the source code for log4net I cannot
find any obvious reason for the callback to not be set.

I have the setup running by configuring the RemoteAppender from a config
file, but I need to set the logging server based on information given at
runtime.
The code I used to try and achieve my goal is inserted below.

Thank you for any help or hints.

/Mikael
