How do I set my ADSL2+ Router to send system log data to an external logging program?
In order to recieve this system log data, your computer must have system log software installed and running on it. There are many freeware system loggers available on the Internet. One such program is Kiwi Syslog Daemon. It can be found at http://www.kiwisyslog.com/info_syslog.htm. When this program is installed with the default settings and running, it will write system logs to the file C:\Program Files\Syslogd\Logs\SyslogCatchAll.txt. Other programs will behave differently. See the documentation of the program for details.
- Launch your Web browser. In the location or address line, type the address of the router's Web User Interface and press Enter.
Note: If you have modified your router's IP address, enter the new IP address instead of 192.168.1.1
When the user name and password window appears, type in the user name and the password of the router. The default user name and password are both admin. Click OK to load the router's setup page.
- Move the mouse over Status in the main menu and select System Log.
- Click Configure.
- Select Enable log. Set the Log and Display levels to the desired value (Debugging logs the most information, Emergency the least). Select Both from the Mode drop-down menu. Enter the IP address of the computer that will be recieving the logs in the Server IP Address field. Enter 514 for Server UDP Port. Click Apply to save your changes.
