Setting up syslog server only require 3 basic commands:

logging on

logging trap severity_level

logging host interface ip_address


Severity level could be:

0 emergency

1 alert

2 critical

3 error

4 warning

5 notification

6 informational

7 debug


logging trap debugging



interface where the syslog server is going to be installed (inside, outside, dmz)

ip address:

ip address of the host with the syslog server


logging host inside


Remember that you need to have the syslog server opened and there has to be connecivity

between server host and firewall

On this link you will find further information on setting up syslog server:

Hope this helps.
