Submitter did not read documentation:

     -s               Select ``secure'' mode, in which syslogd does not listen
                      on a UDP socket but only communicates over a UNIX domain
                      socket.  This is valuable when the machine on which
                      syslogd runs is subject to attack over the network and
                      it is desired that the machine be protected from
                      attempts to remotely fill logs and similar attacks.
