PIX device logging

When I tried to access the PIX firewall using the external IP address (from the Internet), I noticed that the PIX did not created a syslog entry to report this attempt. Does someone know how to setup the PIX that attempts to access the pix are logged?

Thanks

Re: PIX device logging

Set your PIX logging level to Debugging (Level 7):

pix(config)# logging trap debugging

I guess you have built a conduit (or ACL if you've moved on from conduits!) for this connection. If you have configured the PIX as per the manual (it says for production use level 3 / errors) then the syslog will only contain denys etc. If your firewalls are busy, then the logfile will become very large once you set the syslog level to debugging.

Anyway hope this sorts it.

Phil.
