3. Port Parameters Menu: Invoke the /P command to access
the Port Parameters Menu for the desired port. For
example to set up Port 12 to send Syslog messages, type
/P 12 and press [Enter]. Set the following parameters:
a) Port Mode: Use item 7 in the Port Parameters Menu to
set the Port Mode to "Buffer."
b) Syslog Function: Use item 16 in the Port Parameters
Menu to enable the Syslog Function. Item 16 allows
you to select either "On - Not Connected" (messages
will only be sent when a user is not connected to the
Buffer port) or "On - Always" (all captured data is sent,
whether a user is connected to the Buffer port or not.)
c) Syslog Facility and Level: If desired, items 161 and
162 can be used to set the Facility and Level (priority)
for messages sent by this port.
4. Network Parameters Menu: Type /N and press [Enter]
to access the Network Parameters Menu. Set the following
a) Syslog IP Address: Determine the IP address for the
device that will run the Syslog Daemon, and then use
item 8 in the Network Port Configuration menu to
define the IP Address for the Syslog Daemon.
b) Syslog Date-Time: If desired, item 9 in the Network
Parameters Menu can be used to enable automatic
time/date stamping of all Syslog messages that are
generated by the CMS-32 unit. This is often useful if
your Syslog Daemon does not perform time/date
stamping itself, and you wish to track the time and date
when each Syslog message is generated.
5. Syslog Daemon: In order to capture messages sent by the
CMS, a computer must be running a Syslog Daemon (set to
UDP Port 514) at the IP address that was specified in
Step 4 above.
