enable syslogging for the traffic and log all the traffic matching that ACL to syslog server.

from your previous post: my syslog trap level is notification. I believe that the logging level for access lists is informational. Change the trap level to informational and let us know what happens.

Hi Sureshkumar

I have already answered this question in VPN security forum for you. You need to set your syslog trap level to informational.

If you leave your trap level as notification you will not see the permits.

I believe that your question is: Is syslog will generate only deny logs by default?

The answer to that is no it is not default to generate logs only for deny. It will generate logs for any ACL statement that includes the log keyword. So if you have permit statements including the log keyword then you should see the permitted packets in your log messages.
