UDP forwarding

The goal was to redirect log4r messages from multiple sources going into single sink hosted on the server into my workstation.
Apparently UDP forwarding is apparently a very confusing topic.
tools like netcat or ncat apparently fix client ip/port coordinates after receiving first data and ignore subsequent datagrams.
This sucks
Luckily this came to help. FTW.

log4r and chainsaw v2

After spending long hours on trying to get a log4j style logging with my RoR application I figured out that actually Chainsaw does not accept any changes in configuration after start-up configuration is loaded. Dear Java community, is that me, or is it some frigging lame coding?
