centos 7 configure rsyslog to receive cisco logs

mphillip85 used Ask the Experts™
I have not been able to verify that logs are being received on the centos 7 server using rsyslog

firewall has udp 514 open and listening same set on the cisco asa

cannot see why it is not working, I do sh logging and it shows how many TX are being sent via the trigger but cannot find on rsyslog server.

In /etc/rsyslog.conf, uncomment these lines:

   $ModLoad imudp
   $UDPServerRun 514
   $IncludeConfig /etc/rsyslog.d/*.conf

In /etc/rsyslog.d create a file called asa.conf and add these lines where A.B.C.D is the IP of the asa:
    if $fromhost-ip startswith 'A.B.C.D' then /var/log/asa.log
    & ~

Restart syslog:
   systemctl restart rsyslog

And update logrotate:


Add /var/log/asa.log
