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;

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi uetian i tried the wallwatcher and i was unable to run it due to my anti virus recognising it was a PAK_Generic.001 virus, should i be worried?

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.
