Event Logs into Splunk

Hello Everyone,

 

We have configured splunk as Syslog servers however we are unable to see the any alerts or event logs into our Splunk logger.

Can you take a packet capture on the lan port and see if the device send traffic to your syslog server.

Hello,

 

Thanks for the reply, did a packet capture,  After taking a look at the current configuration. I see the Access Points are sending traffic to the Syslog server IP on UDP port 5569 however I am not able to see complete log in splunk, for Ex : Failed connection to SSID on AP during authentication because the auth server rejected the auth request.which I can see in Meraki dashboard but not seeing these kind of alerts in my splunk sys log server.

 

it could be stopper from splunk, please suggest.

can we assume you have told the relevant Network where to send the logs to?

 

Look under Network wide/General/Reporting 

 

and enter the IP address of the syslog server and chose which roles you want to send over.

 

We've moved away from Splunk and now use ManageEngine instead - considerably cheaper both software and hardware wise 🙂

Hello,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes we have added syslog server IP under Network wide/General/Reporting and set the roles also as per below screenshot.

could you please advice some more on ManageEngine instead, so that I can see that option as well in our current environment
