Setting up syslogs to one of our servers

We are wanting to set up syslogs for our ASA 5510 to go to one of our servers. How do we go about doing this?

Thanks

At a minimum you start by enabling logging using the command

logging enable

and you specify the logging host to which you want to send messages using the command

logging host Inside 172.16.43.78

Thanks Richard

Do we have to set specific levels as well?

You are not required to set severity level for sending syslog messages to a server. There are a number of options you can use to fine tune how you send syslog messages to the server, including severity level. But setting the level is not a requirement.

Ok.

So just enable logging and then point to what host the logs get sent to and thats it?

Does our server have to have a syslog app running on it?

Like I said in a previous post, there are other options that you might use to fine tune your logging. But the only required steps to get syslog sent from the ASA to a server are to enable logging and to configure the host to which the syslog will be sent.

Yes your server must have a syslog app running on it if it is to receive and process the syslog messages.
