Hi,

1) & 2) How can I check the event log on my firewall using the CLI & ASDM

logging enable

logging timestamp

logging buffer-size < > --> optional

logging buffered < specify the level - ex: errors/warnings, debugging, informational etc)

logging asdm

below link gives you more detailed info.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa72/system/message/logconf.html

Once configured, issue 'Show logging' on ASA CLI to check the events.

3) any recommended syslog server on windows.

Whats your budget? There are Few free basic syslog servers available. Google for it.

Kiwi Syslog server from Solarwinds is free

From the ASDM, you can just click 'Enable Logging' and you'll start to see the logs in the window.

In addition to following what MS said, if you do the following command you'll be able to get an idea of why your L2L tunnel is failing at phase 1. The 127 is the debug level and should show you enough information to assist with your troubleshooting

     debug crypto isakmp 127

Good luck
