Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator


The Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator DSM for JSA accepts Cisco VPN Concentrator events by using syslog.

JSA records all relevant events. Before you can integrate with a Cisco VPN concentrator, you must configure your device to forward syslog events to JSA.

To configure your Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator:

  1. Log in to the Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator command-line interface (CLI).
  2. Type the following command to add a syslog server to your configuration:

    set logging server <IP address>

    Where <IP address> is the IP address of JSA or your Event Collector.

  3. Type the following command to enable system messages to be logged to the configured syslog servers:

    set logging server enable

  4. Set the facility and severity level for syslog server messages:
    • set logging server facility <server_facility_parameter>

    • set logging server severity <server_severity_level>

    The configuration is complete. The log source is added to JSA as Cisco VPN Concentrator events are automatically discovered. Events that are forwarded to JSA are displayed on the Log Activity tab of JSA.
