Configure devices to send messages to Kiwi Syslog Server NG

To receive messages from a syslog-capable device, configure the device to send syslog messages to the appropriate port on the computer where Kiwi Syslog Server NG is installed.

Kiwi Syslog Server NG automatically listens for UDP messages on port 514. This is the default port for devices sending syslog messages as defined by the RFC standard 5426.

For information about configuring a specific device, see documentation from the device manufacturer. Kiwi Syslog Server NG Getting Started Guide provides an example of configuring a Cisco switch.

Message logging must be enabled on the device. On many devices that generate syslog messages, logging is enabled by default.

If you have configured devices but Kiwi Syslog Server NG is not displaying messages, see the troubleshooting tips in the Getting Started Guide.
