To configure the MAX to send messages to a Syslog daemon, open the Log submenu of the Ethernet Profile (Mod Config menu). Then, follow these steps:
Set Syslog to Yes.
If the host is not on the subnet as the MAX, specify the IP address of the host running Kiwi Syslog Daemon.
The MAX must have a route to that host via RIP or a static route.
See Table 12-3. "System configuration and administration parameters."
"Location Parameters via RIP or a static route."
See Chapter 10. "Configuring the MAX as an IP Router."
Note: Do not configure the MAX to send reports to a Syslog host that can only be reached by a dial-up connection. Doing so will cause the MAX to redial the log host for every logged action, including hang ups.
The Log Facility parameter is used to flag messages from the MAX. After you set a log facility number, you need to configure Kiwi Syslog Daemon to write all messages containing that facility number to a particular log file (That will be the MAX log file).
Use the Actions tab to set a log file for each facility (or use all.debug to catch all facilities)
For more details on these parameters, see the MAX Reference Guide or visit the Lucent website
