PIX Dynamic NAT logging into syslog

Can any body assist me in how to log the dynamic translations happening in the PIX 510 to a syslog server.We have done the configuration of Dynamic NAT translation logging to a syslog server in a 7206 router.The command line says ip nat log translation syslog.Can someone help me whether there is any similat commandline in pix.


Re: PIX Dynamic NAT logging into syslog

here are steps to set up syslog on pix :

1. Logging on pix buffer:

pix(config)#logging on

pix(config)#logging buffered debugging

To view logs :

pix(config)#show log

NOTE: This will display all messages on pix and could cause problems on the pix, so the

suggested thing is to use a syslog server on the inside interface of the pix.

2. Logging into a server

a) Set up a PC that is going to work as a syslog server

b) Configure pix:

pix(config)#logging on

pix(config)#logging trap debugging

pix(config)#logging host inside x.x.x.x

where x.x.x.x is the ip address of the PC that is going to work as syslog server

This will send all messages to server

Re: PIX Dynamic NAT logging into syslog

Hi, I was wondering if you would mind sharing the config for the 7206 router. I am trying to get this to work for a 870 router. It logs to the router but not the syslog server. I have applied the command:

ip nat log translations syslog

My syslog is receiving other messages okay. I am running c870-advsecurityk9-mz.124-4.T1.bin.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
