how to read the log??

The FREESCO 0.3.x system log is stored in a file /var/log/messagesThis log file can be viewed in a number of ways:

  1. via the 3rd console, type ALT+F3 to activate the 3rd console on your FREESCO. This only works on the keyboard and screen directly attached to your FREESCO PC.

  1. via a shell session (SSH/Console), type next command:
more /var/log/messages
If the utils_1.0_dingetje or utils_1.1_dingetje package is installed, you can use the tail command to show only the last N lines of the file, i.e.:

tail -N50 /var/log/messages

will print only the last 50 entries.

  1. via the web control panel service (if enabled in FREESCO setup):
  • open a browser to http://your.freesco.ip:82
  • login as admin, password as set during initial setup
  • use the Recent Log link in the Info section of the menu
  • The system messages will appear in the main frame of the control panel
