What software can I use with my Draytek and Syslog to obtain useful info about the firewall

Hello Experts

I am trying to track down problems with my draytek firewall using syslog but this just provides me with a long text file which is time consuming to go through and understand.
Is there software that can convert this into more editable data?
Or is there a better logger I can use with my draytek?

Thanks

Hi,

You need a firewall analyzer for detailed analysis. Below is an example;

It is an application and if you Installed it from their own site then I doubt that it is a virus. You can ask the Anti-Virus support about the problem.
