Logging on IOS FW 12.4

Unanswered Question
Aug 16th, 2007

IOS Firewall logging mechanism is only displaying firewalling messages even though all logging is enabled. How do you turn on regular IOS router logging, like login, interface up/down?

I have this problem too.

Can you configure the follwoing command under the interface and check

logging event link-status

This configuration is already there...

Would I need to set logging parameters on the interface itself if I wanted to validate traffic passing thru this particular interfaces?
