Cyfin Syslog Server listens for syslog messages from your Bloxx device. Both UDP-based and TCP-based messages are supported.

  3. Select Enable Syslog Server.
  4. For Port Type, select UDP or TCP for the Internet protocol you want to use.
  5. In the Listening Port field, the default port number is 1455. The listening port will be used by your Bloxx device to transfer the data. You may change this number if necessary.
  6. At your Bloxx device, specify the IP address of the Cyfin server and the listening port, and submit the syslog messages.
  7. Your log files will be created and displayed in the Log File Viewer in Cyfin.
  8. If you have many of the same Bloxx devices, use one log file configuration with one listening port, and point each Bloxx device to the same listening port.
