Tipping Point X505/X506 Device


The Tipping Point X505/X506 DSM for JSA accepts events by using syslog.

JSA records all relevant system, audit, VPN, and firewall session events.

Configuring Syslog

You can configure your device to forward events to JSA.

  1. Log in to the Tipping Point X505/X506 device.
  2. From the LSM menu, select System >Configuration >Syslog Servers.

    The Syslog Servers window is displayed.

  3. For each log type you want to forward, select a check box and type the IP address of your JSA.Note

    If your JSA is in a different subnet than your Tipping Point device, you might have to add static routes. For more information, see your vendor documentation.

    You are now ready to configure the log source in JSA.

  4. To configure JSA to receive events from a Tipping Point X505/X506 device: From the Log Source Type list, select the Tipping Point X Series Appliances option.Note

    If you have a previously configured Tipping Point X505/X506 DSM installed and configured on your JSA, the Tipping Point X Series Appliances option is still displayed in the Log Source Type list. However, for any new Tipping Point X505/X506 DSM that you configure, you must select the Tipping Point Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) option.
