Unable to view the Gateway system log

Jump to solution

Hello,engineers

        Select "Send Syslog Messages to Management Server" in the Gateway's Web interface, but the Gateway's system log is not visible in the SmartConsole.

I also tried to configure checkpoint Log Server's IP address on the Gateway's Web interface, "Remote System Logging," but when I logged into the log Server, I still didn't receive the Gateway system log

Hi @Wang 

Logs from the gateway to the management server are sent via tcp port 257

If this doesn't work, it may be due to missing implied rules or NAT.

Also, I question how useful this is in general as you would need to create your own syslog parsers in order to be able to more easily "see" the relevant information in SmartView.

Gateway and Management Server can communicate over TCP port 257

Can you tell us what is missing from GW Logs if you do not use SysLog at all ?
