This extensions allows for Syslog messages to be sent to a Syslog server over UDP.

Instructions:
1) From the Extensions page, locate the Send Syslog Messages extension, expand the Options drop down menu and select Edit Settings

2) There are several options here, but the most important settings for establishing a connection to your Syslog server are Server and Port. For the Server setting you need to enter the IP address or hostname of the machine running your Syslog server. For Port, simply enter the port number your Syslog server is listening on. The remaining settings allow you to decide what kind of messages to send, the text content of the message and its severity. Please note that since different Syslog server applications expect different message formats, the message may not display cleanly within the server application; however, all the information should still be present.

Hello, Thanks for this! I'm having an issue where the syslog message is not showing the host of the session - so we cannot see which IT Admin connected to a staff members PC. Host just shows as null:

<134>1 2017-09-29T14:47:13.8525868+08:00 AUMELSVRG2 ScreenConnect - - [sessionid=2439a911-b230-4f0c-a2dc-781234569ae0 name=AUBNESVCM host=null guest=null isPublic=False type=Access] A session was connected to

Any ideas on where to look?

Thanks!

Hi michaelc,

This is actually a bug. The fix will be in the next version. Unfortunately, we are having some trouble publishing extensions at the moment, but we are working hard to resolve that issue as we speak. I will post here when the new version is available. Thanks.
