Is it possible for SSM-20 to stream to syslog? I can't find any mention in the documentation on how to configure this.
The objective is simple: all SSM-20 generated events are sent to syslog using the good old UDP method.
Then the syslog server will do some data mining; FYI: I am using Manage Engine's product which has produced great results with other Cisco devices.
If the SSM-20 CAN NOT stream to syslog directly what ideas do you have in order to get those events pushed to syslog? Could the ASA be used as a proxy?
No, you can't send events to the ASA.
SNMP Traps was the workaround. There is no syslog for signature events on Cisco IPS Sensors.
Now if you want to wait till you get a Sourcefire image running on a 5500-X platform, THEN you can get syslogs. (beta starts in the spring)
