Yes it was the same machine. I will load wireshark and see.

There have been some bugs in the past where syslog-ng was not always
connecting to the database correctly on the proper ports, etc. However
in your case this could only apply if something was also listening on
the default port I would assume, since it seemed like it had connected.
Although as one of the other posters had pointed out there could be an
inaccurate error message as well. Perhaps you could verify it's
connecting properly to the DB using Wireshark?

Was the tsql / sqsh / etc. based testing performed using the same
machine as the syslog-ng setup is running?
