How to pull log files from Cisco 2651

Last Modified: 2010-05-18
Our network recently crashed due to some possible changes on our Cisco 2651 router. It took about 3 hours to fix the issue, but we never found out what caused it. We basically had to upload a back up of our configuration to the router for it to work again. We would like to pull the syslog messages off the router but we are not really sure how to so this. We have tried but there is no clear cut step-by-step way to acheive this. Also, is it possible to log telnet sessions and trace them back to an IP address? And one last question, will the logs tell us what changes were made and where the changes came from (IP, username, etc.) Any help would be greatly appreciated!
