Trying to View old logs from WatchGuard Firebox 1000

Good Day all,

I am trying to view logs from earlier in the morning, but the logs only go within the last hour or two.  Is there anyway on this box to view logs from earlier in the day?

To view old logs in WG logging must be configured; easiest way to check if that is the case, in traffic monitor check the date/time of the logs if they are correct then you do have logging configured; if not; then sorry but we have lost old logs but we can configure log server for furture reference.

Next once you decide you wish to keep logs; you must decide on an internal machine on which the logs would be dumped. It would be preferable to have a server with some storage space.
You might use the same machine where the Watchguard management software is installed or you might use some other machine.
On the designated log server, install the WG software and make sure to select log option; then you would have or already might have a service running on the management software by name Watchguard Security Event Processor [WSEP - little red box on system tray]; if yes then edit the service and here you can configure the log encryption key.
Please remember this key, we would go in Policy Manager->Setup->logging; Add; under IP address specify the IP address of log server, and in the log encryption key put the same key.

Save to firebox; your firebox time would now sync with your log server; also you would be able to view the log files.

Thank you.

You have option to open Logs once you are connected to log server.

Which version of watchguard software are you running.

Please advice.
