Re: ASA Logs

Here are the steps for setting up the syslog server.

First you would need to install a syslog server software on one of the computers. You may

download one of the popular kiwisyslog server from

http://www.kiwisyslog.com/software_downloads.htm . It is listed as Kiwi

Syslog Daemon and latest version is 8.2.8. You may download standard edition that runs as

a program.

Once the syslog server is installed you will then need to login into the ASA in

configuration terminal mode and enter the following commands.

logging host [in_if_name] ip_address

(example: logging host inside 1.2.3.4

We are assuming syslog server is installed on computer with IP address 1.2.3.4 in the

inside network.)

logging timestamp

logging trap 4

logging on

These commands will enable the ASA to start sending syslog messages to the syslog server.

For more information on logging commands you may refer to this URL:
