I have a watchguard x55e and have enabled the syslog logging option. I need to configure the syslog to receive the messages and wonder how? I need to collect them for analysis by webspy.

Please read the article below to configure Edge:

If you need help with configuration of syslog.conf please provide some details of the OS and the distribution.

If you wish you can use kiwi syslog daemon server which runs on any windows PC [].

Please advice if you need more help.

I was able to get the logging configured using syslog.conf and by also adding syslog parameters "-r" to receive from the remote device.
