Log4View 2010.2 and the UDP appender


After having published Log4View 2010.2, some users told me, that they had difficulties with the UDP appender.

As a matter of fact, the new field “Hostname”, which we added to the UDP receiver form, can only accept IP addresses (e.g. “”). There is no DNS resolution for the host name in the UDP receiver.

Even worse, the host name is empty by default, which makes the UDP receiver fail. So please make sure, that you provide a valid IP address.

We will fix this in the next release.
