Yet, with different business tasks and objectives, many departments don’t fully understand the capabilities of Web Help Desk and how the software can be customized for effective use in their departments.

This feature is available only in the licensed version.

Use the Hostname filter to include or exclude messages based on the host name of the sending device. Only messages from included hosts trigger the actions in the associated rule.

If a rule does not contain a Hostname filter, all hosts are included.

  1. From the Kiwi Syslog Service Manager, choose File > Setup.
  2. Add a new rule, or locate an existing rule.
  3. Right-click the Filters node below the rule, and choose Add Filter.
  4. Replace the default name with a descriptive name. (The name does not have to be unique.)
  5. In the Field menu, select Hostname.

  6. Select an option from the Filter Type menu, and specify one or more host names.

    Simple

    Enter one or more host names to include. Enclose each name in quotes.

    There is an OR relationship between the host names. Messages from any of these hosts are included.

    Complex

    Enter the host names to include or to exclude. Enclose each name in quotes.

    There is an OR relationship between host names on the same line. Messages are included or excluded if they are sent from any of the hosts on the line.

    RegExp

    Enter one or more regular expressions to specify the host names to include or exclude.

  7. (Optional) Test the filter.
  8. Click Apply to save the filter.

    Only messages from included hosts trigger the actions in the associated rule.
