Which syslog server should I use?

I have cisco works LMS 2.5 which has syslog server & also all this VPN?s are added to it with the classless option enabled but still I am not able to find any logs on the syslog server

The VPN concentrators support two syslog messages format. In order for the syslog messages to be handled by RME, you must enable IOS or EMBLEM compatible format.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the answer.

Any idea how do i enable this?

i have foud this commmand but how do i do it for VPN 3000 series

logging host in_if_name ip_address [format {emblem}]

also can i use any other syslog server aslo apart form Cisco Works.

Basically my idea is to just setup a logging server for my VPN all the logs what i can se in VPN should come to the syslog servers.

Once again thanks for the help.

You can find it via the web interface under Configuration > System > Events > General. You need to set the Syslog Format to "Cisco IOS compatible".
