Firewall Log

Firewall Log

A firewall can record its activities in a log. You can disable the firewall log or enable the log and specify the location of the firewall log, either on an Enterprise Cloud server or to an external IP address.

Note: The server selected must have:

  • A third party firewall logging application installed.
  • The logging application configured to process UDP log data.
  • Access to the specified IP address.

Your firewall sends its log data on port 514. If your logging requires the source IP address, contact Global Support Services for the active IP address of your firewall context.

Note: The firewall does not support Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) addresses for logging.

  2. The Firewall Log Server Location dialog appears.

    The Current Location of log is shown.
