Hello Waseem,

configuring a syslog server and an adeguate level of logging should be enough.

Kiwi syslog is a good syslog server that we use and it should be freeware

Hope to help

hi Giuseppe

i have configured syslog server but i am unable to see any log. The following commands are entered under ASA 5550 for logging.

"logging on" , "logging host inside" Is there any other command in ASA required for proper logging?

Thanks for your reply, Actually i have configured ASA 5550 as a VPN server and all remote clients are connected to it. Actually i want only those logs which tells me which user connected time and logged off time.

one thing , how can i filter the log. "logging message " will enable or disable the log for that event id. i only want log to appear on syslog with event id e.g 113004.

logging message level <0-7>

is that what you are looking for?
