Viewing Syslog on a HP switch
I have a HP V1910 24g switch and I am suspecting few issues with it when it comes to hosts connecting to it.
I am trying to see the Syslog on the switch but
a- I am not too familiar with it
b- I have configured the loghost to be the switch it self but nothing appears on the syslog page.
So how to view the Syslog?
I have three users who are always experiencing issues connecting I just want to know if the ports are faulty.
On the interface level nothing seems to be unusual.
Any help will be highly appreciated

Try removing the IP address of the switch itself from the Loghost list. This was more designed for specifying
loghosts and is an optional setting.
I did but the syslog just don't display anything ..now it has only my workstation IP address but still no logs to see
DId you try rebooting the switch after removing the IP address of the switch from the Loghost list?
I started with Experts Exchange in 2004 and it's been a mainstay of my professional computing life since. It helped me launch a career as a programmer / Oracle data analyst
I was hoping you do not say that
No I can not reboot it I would be taken to court if I did. it is a switch in a strategic position for an investment co.
What I did was I added my workstation IP as a Log host , removed the IP of the switch itself and configured the refresh interval etc.
But nothing appears. when I click on the Syslog
Sorry, wasn't aware you couldn't reboot it. May I ask why you added your workstation IP address as the log host? Do you have syslog software installed on your machine to collect the logs?
I did but it does not seem to be working
Do you recommend a good free software I can install it on my pc?

I am not concerned aboutthat to be honest
But should I be able to view the syslog on the switch itself without further configuration or anything?
