    The source IP of the sending FW is right after the timestamp, informational level will show you user names.

    logging enable
    logging buffer-size 1000000
    logging console informational
    logging buffered informational
    logging trap informational
    logging host inside <Enter_IP_of_syslogserver> (I assume the syslog server is on inside network)
