active monitoring of remote access vpn connections

Hi all,

I am using asa 5520 and asa 5540 for remote access vpn connections. Is it possible to do active monitoring of my vpn connections so that there would be alerts for vpn tunnels that fail to establish due to other reasons other than user authentication? Pls advise. Thks in advance.

Kiwi Syslog will work fine - as long as you have a licensed version, a "free" ver does not support the email extras.

See the below url and search for "VPN" you will see which VPN syslog codes you can choose from.

I use a linux syslog-ng server - that the ASA's send syslogs messages to.  On the Linux server I watch for specific key words in the syslog messages, when one is triggered the syslog server sends me an email.
