Hi,

I have configured and activated "Remote Server 1" in the Log Settings on my ATP800. Does it need a restart before sending logs?

I can't see any connections on my syslog server.

    Hi @edfosho

    Welcome to the forum. Make yourself at home.


    Sorry for my stupid question, is your firewall policy allowing the syslog flow?


    Regards

    Hi @Alfonso

    Not a stupid question... does there need to be a rule on the ATP800 itself?

    It's not clear what IP interface on the ATP800 the syslog messages will be coming from.

    Hi @edfosho

    Welcome to Zyxel Community. 😀

    There is no need to restart device. Just click “Active” and fill in the syslog server IP.

    All the log items are disabled by default, you need to change to normal. 

    Enable log: Set to Normal at “CONFIGURATION > Log & Report > Log Settings > Remote Server 1”


    Packets trace : After completion of the action above, you should be able to see the syslog packets sent out from ATP interface.

    CLI: packet-trace interface gex extension-filter port 514
