Check Point R81. The objective is to send logs to third party syslog (I'm speaking about logs appearing in SmartConsole under "Logs and Monitor").
I followed instructions reported here: Working with Syslog Servers; basically I added the syslog server under Security Gateway > Logs > Send logs and alerts to these log servers. So now there are two servers: Check Point Management and syslog server.
However no logs appears on the destination (syslog server); any idea on how to troubleshooting the issue ? I tried with a tcpdump (source: Security Gateway, destination: syslog server) but no traffic appears.
Is the solution applied (above), the right one to achieve the objective ?
I also discovered the Log Exporter that seems to be the same thing...? So now, which is the difference between Log Exporter vs syslog forward from Security Gateway ? (Yes, I already know the first one is on Management and the second one is from Security Gateway).
Thank you a lot,
