Syslog Server Required

I require a Syslog server for logging of Routers, Switches and PIX firewall ?

ANy help?


Re: Syslog Server Required

we use php-syslog-ng. it is a frontend for viewing syslog-ng messages logged to MySQL in realtime. It features customized searches based on device, priority, date, time, and message. very good.


Re: Syslog Server Required

use kiwisyslog simple and free


Re: Syslog Server Required

syslog-ng is very granular and you can specify

separate locations for each devices.

Furthermore, you can dump this into mySQL for

mining and analysis later.

i don't think Kiwi can do that and even if it

does, it requires MS SQL server for that which

is not free.

Re: Syslog Server Required

Can i get the direct link for, PIX Firewall Manager (PFM) and/or PIX Firewall Syslog Server (PFSS).


Re: Syslog Server Required

I have tried to locate the direct link on the cisco website but cant find either. if you can find it i am happy to use my CCO to download it for you.

good luck.


Re: Syslog Server Required

like i said before syslog-ng will do what you want. we use it for our cisco devices, routers, switches and firewalls

With syslog-ng

In syslog-ng.conf you put something like this

destination ra1 { file("/logging/sw/ra1"); };

filter f_ra1 { host(ip_ra1); };

log { source(net); filter(f_ra1); destination(ra1); };

and on cisco switch you put smth like this

#snmp-server enable traps syslog
