RSM Series; Remote Site Managers - User’s Guide
3. Port Parameters Menu: Access the Port Parameters Menu for the
desired port as described in Section 5.7.2, and then set the following
a) Port Mode: Set the Port Mode to "Buffer."
b) Syslog Function: Enable the Syslog Function. The Syslog Function
allows you to select either "On - Not Connected" (messages are
only 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, set the Facility and Level
(priority) for messages sent by this port.
4. Network Parameters Menu: Access the Network Parameters Menu as
described in Section 5.7.3, then set the following parameters:
a) Syslog IP Address: Determine the IP address for the device that will
run the Syslog Daemon, then use the Network Port Conﬁguration
menu to deﬁne the IP Address for the Syslog Daemon.
b) Syslog Date-Time: If desired, you may wish to enable automatic
time/date stamping of all Syslog messages generated by the RSM.
This is often useful if your Syslog Daemon does not perform time/
date stamping itself.
5. Syslog Daemon: In order to capture messages sent by the RSM, a
computer must be running a Syslog Daemon (set to UDP Port 514) at the
IP address speciﬁed in Step 4 above.
