Kiwi Syslog Daemon with D-Link DI-804V Router
- Your router must be installed and working.
- Go into the configuration panel ( http://192.168.0.1
) and click on the "Advanced Settings"
tab from the top navigation bar.
- Select “Administration
Settings” from the left side navigation bar.
- Under ‘SYSTEM Log’
click on “Enable System Log Function”
and enter the IP address of the
computer you installed Kiwi Syslog
Daemon on (or will install on).
download and install the Kiwi Syslog
Daemon (if needed.) When you start Kiwi Syslog
Daemon you will see
File -> Properties.
click on the line that has Log to file.
- This screen defines where Kiwi
will write the log file that CVTWIN processes.
Note the contents of the Path and file
name of log file field. This is what you enter in CVTWIN's log file field.
sure that Log file format is Kiwi format
ISO yyyy-mm-dd (Tab delimited), so
that CVTWIN does not get
snarled up trying to decipher a different log format.
on OK when done. Then click
on Log Archiving
- The default
Now click INPUTS, UDP
- This shows if
any archiving is scheduled. Not scheduling archiving is good, because
otherwise you will have to juggle Kiwi's archiving and running CVTWIN, because you do not want Kiwi to archive logs
before CVTWIN has a chance to process them.
Read the Kiwi docs on archiving and figure this out yourself. I just
wanted to point out the potential conflict.
sure that Listen to UDP
Syslog messages is checked. The D-Link
804V router uses UDP Port 514 to fling its logs
out, so we need Kiwi configured to capture them….
Use the D-Linksys firewall
filter in CVTWIN
called Kiwi Syslog
Daemon (DLink DI-804V) the Display filter is optional. This filters out some junk
for the display version of Kiwi's log, but does not affect the log that is written to disk. CVTWIN only
cares about the log file that is written to disk.
Click on OK. Kiwi should now be configured to save logs in a format that CVTWIN can process.
