Thanks for the help. I took a quick scan through the logging module and I
can't see any mention of writing to a remote file ? Could you please direct
me to the part you mentioned ?. I went through some of the examples and the
one related to remote logging is via the console (tcp port). I cannot see
any information given regarding remote logging.
Just to give some more info on what I am doing. I have a large script that
is running and outputting messages to a logfile I am storing. I want these
messages to be output to a remote file instead which can be viewed on a
browser to provide realtime data as the script processes.
So this logfile is not handled by syslog.

This is being done on a Linux machine.

Thanks for the help
