How view Syslog

Unanswered Question
Feb 13th, 2009

I cant seem to view a Syslog with a Device Mgr. I have one router connected to a PC with Device Mgr software installed. I think I set all the enables for Syslog. I set the IP address for the syslog to report to the PC that Device Mgr is installed on. When I open the Syslog window its always blank.

Any hints on how to be able to view SYslog?

Thank you!

I have this problem too.

Hi Robin,

My first thought about this:

If your PC is directly connected to the router then you have to use a crossover cable.

My second thought is:

What protocol and port number does the Device Manager use?

You can set the protocol and port number

to use for syslog using the following command:

logging host [ip address] transport [udp|tcp] port x

hi robin

By default syslot uses 514. We are using kiwi its a freeware tool and easy to install. On router you need to add the given command

logging ip address

By default it will add all the severity levels.
