I've got a v5 router with the Micro firmware. SNMP works great, but I want to also send the logs to another person. So I tried to send the logs to 192.168.1.255 so it would broadcast on the subnet, but the router doesn't output anything.
SNMP, syslog, or RFlow / MACupd? Those are two different entirely unrelated things that you might have confused.
SNMP on wrt doesn't support sending traps, at least that I know of, so it is receive only and then sends a response back to the device that queried it. You can have as many devices as you want query snmp.
now if you are talking syslog/RFlow/MACupd, wrt does SEND those out, and trying to broadcast any of them is a very bad idea and won't work anyway. Instead, if you are on linux at least, install a better syslog (msyslog) at allows you to both handle and forward incoming data. if you are using RFlow / MACupd, then i'm out of suggestions..
