Our cisco apparently isn't sysloging anywhere since it's on the private 
vlan.  Our conserver logfile contains:

[Mon Nov 24 12:25:44 2003] conserver (27009): [foo] automatic 
[Mon Nov 24 14:25:44 2003] conserver (27009): [foo] automatic 
[Mon Nov 24 14:25:45 2003] conserver (27009): ERROR: [foo] connect(22): 
Connection refused: forcing down
