Configure Cisco IOS

To configure your Cisco IOS devices, do the following:

  1. Navigate to your Cisco IOS device terminal through the SSH/Telnet connection (for example, use PuTTY Telnet client).
  2. Access the global configuration mode. For example:

    Router# configure terminal

  3. Enable time stamps in syslog messages:

    Router# service timestamps log datetime localtime show-timezone

  4. Set the logging trap option from 1 to 6 inclusive. For example:

    Router# logging trap 5

  5. Set the IP address of the Netwrix Auditor Server as the logging host parameter. And make sure that the UDP port is used for sending syslog messages (e.g., 514 UDP port). For example:

    Router# 514
