Hi Joe,
I need one more small info..
How do you programatically clear a local0.log remotely from a windows system?

@ Anonymous, use SSH to login via Putty or Pterm, you should always have sshd configured to refuse root login, the best method is to login as your normally would and su or sudo as root!
