rsyslogd could not listen on TCP port 514

(Doc ID 2041930.1)

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A customer needed to start an rsyslogd process, and have it listen on TCP and UDP port 514.   This is clearly not the suggested configuration by rsyslog as only UDP port 514 is registered for syslog services. The default application for TCP port 514 is the remote shell service.
