<H3>Adding a log server:</H3>

This is a fairly simple process.  Complete the following fields:
<UL>
   <LI> <B>Server name</B>: Name or nickname of the logging server for
        future identification
   <LI> <B>Hostname</B>: IP address or fully qualified domain name of
        the logging server that SLOP can use to connect to the server
   <LI> <B>Username</B>: Username that SLOP can use to login to the
        server
   <LI> <B>Password</B>: Preferrably you can configure ssh on the server
        running SLOP to communicate with the logging server using
        public/private keys without passwords (see manpage for
        ssh-keygen).  If you can\'t do this, enter a password here so
        the user running your slop perl scripts can login to the logging
        server.

When the form has been filled out, click the "Add Log Server" button.

and notify you of success or failure.
