We have ASA 5550 (ver. 8.0.4). We configured the ASA so that messages can be sent to Syslog server. We were able to ping the Syslog server from the ASA. However, no messages are sent to the Syslog server. The Syslog server has been configured to accept messages from the ASA. Below is part of the config of the ASA. Thanks.
Please ignore my previous message. I added "logging facility 19" and now I started to receive messages from the Syslog server. May I ask you another question? Do I open the Sylog file by using Excel? I just wonder if you would use other utility to open the Syslog file. Thanks again.
Are you using a Kiwi Syslog server? What are you trying to do with the logs? If you're trying to do some level of analytics and run reports based on the syslog messages, there are a bunch of useful tools available for this:
Thanks for your prompt response and information, Eddie. My Syslog server is not a Kiwi server. I am using the logs to troubleshoot problems and to see the activities on the ASA. I will continue using Excel to open the Log files. Thanks very much again.
