heloo @prowley - no never and without more information I can not really tell you what is wrong. Can you open an issue on GitHub if you still need help please ?

Sure, I want to try to fix the problem a bit longer before I go there. Working on it, just thought this might ring a bell.

ok, I got it: first, the 'syslog" is actually from the process directive in config (left over from the example I used), and then the problem was a bad #! line resulting in the shell executing the script, and that's what it ends up looking like

I'm trying to set up a test environment with exabgp talking to a listen only exabgp, are there any problems with that?
Building a bgpsniff type of thing

one thing is setting the port for a peer so I can run both exabgp on the same box
