ASA 8.2 is not sending message to syslog server

Dear All,

I have ASA with version 8.2.

I tried to configure syslog server on the ASA with following commands.

logging host DMZ4-INT

logging enable

logging timestamp

logging buffered errors

logging trap errors

logging asdm informational

logging facility 21

logging permit-hostdown

I have ensured that port 514 is opened on the ASA

access-list DMZ4-INT_in line 6 extended permit udp host any eq syslog

access-group DMZ4-INT_in in interface DMZ4-INT

I am using the syslog server 3C Daemon But ASA is not sending any message to syslog.But I can see the logs when I run the command "show logging"

ASA 8.2 is not sending message to syslog server

1) Is the server reachable? can you ping the server? Is the logging-deamon-started?

2) The logging-config seems ok, That should work.

3) "logging permit-hostdown" is only needed when you use TCP-transport for Syslog.

4) You dont need that ACL for this communication. Outbound-traffic is allowed by default and also traffic which gets sent *to* then ASA never has to be allowed in an Interface-ACL.
