I've downloaded 3CDaemon and actually, I adore it .. Now, I need to enable the SysLog and let all devices on the network dump the logs on it.
I have 2 Routers, 2 Switches, 2 APs and 20 IP Phones. Which of these devices can communicate with the SysLog Server? And how to achieve that?
Basically syslog configuration is very easy with logging host x.x.x.x. But more options that you need to be aware of.
1)Router# configure terminal--Enters global configuration mode.
2)Router(config)# service timestamps type datetime [msec] [localtime] [show-timezone]--Instructs the system to timestamp syslog messages;
3)Router(config)#logging host--Tells the syslog server by IP address or host name; multiple servers also can be specified.
4)Router(config)# logging trap level--severity level. The possible values for level are as follows:Use the debug level with caution, because it can generate a large amount of syslog traffic in a busy network
Router# show logging--Showslogging configuration.
Thanks for the reply. I will apply the config on one of my devices and monitor the syslog and will comeback to you.
For the debugging level, is it better to have it 4 or 5?
Router(config)#service timestamp type datetime msec
Router(config)#logging host 10.10.10.10
Router(config)#logginh trap level-security 4
Is the above correct?
