$ port="the port you want your cisco box to connect to"
$ host="the IP address your cisco box is going to be connecting from"
$ cat > /usr/local/bin/cisco-log <<EOD
exec 2> >(while read line; do logger -i "\$line"; done)
exec cat >> /tmp/cisco-log
$ cat >> /etc/services <<EOD
cisco-log       $port/tcp       # Cisco log
$ cat >> /etc/hosts.allow <<EOD
cisco-log: $host
$ cat >> /etc/hosts.deny <<EOD
cisco-log: all
$ cat >> /etc/inetd.conf <<EOD
cisco-log stream  tcp wait nobody  /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/bin/cisco-log
$ /etc/init.d/inetd reload

Here you go.

Note that if you type in the script in an editor, don't escape the
dollar in $line. It's escaped to avoid expansion in the here-document.
