Baseline Script for Remote Destination Syslog for XR and XE Plus CoPP Plus Nonstandard Syslog Port


I need to come up with a baseline syslog script for XR and XE platforms and integrate them both with CoPP but the documentation I search doesn't cover both topics or how to change the port. I see some commands for switches to change the port but the ASR 9000 XR docuemntation doesn't show that as an option. Is there someone out there good with documentation that can provide me with some documentation with the correct command syntax and detailed show commands to verify configuration?


I need 


1: Hardened remote XR syslog basline script and a CoPP ACL to allow that conversation to occur. 

2. Hardened remote XE syslog basline script and a CoPP ACL to allow that conversation to occur. 

3. Configure a different syslog port beside UDP 514.

4. Source the syslogs from a specific IP address not just the interface it went out on.

Hi Matt,


XR uses LPTS instead of CoPP.

I am not sure what is meant by baseline script? If you enable a syslog server in your configuration then it will stream to the server, we don't support TCP based syslog.
