I have a VPN tunnel between Cisco 877 router and Cisco PIX515E firewall, everything is working ok between the two subnets. The one thing I was not able to do is the configuration of the syslog server between the router and the host in the pix's subnet. I tried to ping the pix's subnet from the router outside interface, the result is unsuccessful, but when I tried to ping from the inside interface it is successful.
192.168.8.0/24 - Router 877 - xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ------------- VPN ------------- xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx PIX515E - 192.168.100.0/24
I would configure a SYSLOG server on the host 192.168.100.241 and send the logging over the VPN from the Cisco router to that host.
Any idea?
thanks in advance

I have bvi interface, so I have to use BVI1 instead of vlan1, right?
What is the port that cisco syslog use to send messages to the server?

how can I use another port? for example, the 1514 instead of 514, how can I apply it on the router?
