Syslogs on ASA arent reaching the specified Syslog server
We have many branch sites that use Cisco ASA 5505 firewalls. I configured each of them to send syslog messages to a specified syslog server back at the HQ, as well as the local buffer. However, the syslog messages are not getting to the syslog server. The buffer is filling up fine. Ive checked and checked again my config. It seems fine but it could be incorrect. I also set up an ACL on the inside interface to see if the hitcount was incrementing, it is not. I can ping the syslog server just fine from the ASA. Unfortunately I am not quite sure how to continue troubleshooting this issue. The connectivity from the HQ to the Branch site is fine (MPLS WAN). I could not find any debug commands pertaining to syslogs on the ASA otherwise I would have tried that. I have posted my ASA config below. Ive ommitted the IP's for security reasons but rest assured they are correct.
Also, I had a question about the port #'s. On the config guide it states the following: Valid port values for either protocol are 1025 through 65535. The default UDP port is 514. The default TCP port is 1470. So if the valid port values are 1025-65535 and the deault UDP port # is 514, how is it a valid port value? Thats confusing.
