Hello,

The HP-UX syslogd should do that by default. You should make sure that your cisco is able to forward log messages to the HP-UX box. This mean that the UDP port 514 is opened through any firewall that stay between cisco and HP-UX.

Thanks ,

The cisco's syslog will auto append to hp-ux's /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log if udp 514 is available ?

No, you must instruct the Cisco's OS to actually forward the syslog messages to the logging server.

It depends on the type of Cisco (IOS version) that you have but you should look for something like:

logging

command.

Also, you would find usefull enabling timestamps in order to have a clue about the time when the logged even occured. You should check your router OS version for:

service timestamps ...

I believe Cisco send syslog messages to the logging server with a default facility of local7.
