Newbie in need of help: Forwarding traffic logs to a syslog server

L0 Member

Hi community,

 

I need to forward all traffic and threat logs to a log collector.

 

I understand most of the process except the security policy part.

 

Once I create a syslog server profile and then a log forwarding profile, I then need to use that log forwarding profile in my security policy.

 

Our firewalls have many rules and my only instructions have been "please forward all traffic and threat logs to our log collector".

 

How best do I do this? Do I manually set the log forwarding profile of every rule to the one I created?

 

Or do I create a new rule? If I create a new rule, what options do I set? Do I put both source and destination address as "any"? everything else as any?

 

Sorry about sounding confused but I appreciate any help.

 

Thank you.

Hi @damom10 ,

 

You'll need to add the profile to all your existing rules. 

DO NOT create an ANY ANY ANY rule unless you want to open all the gates !!!
