No headers

You can add an action to log messages to Papertrail, a cloud-based logging service. You can send logs from Kiwi Syslog Server (or any other servers or applications that can connect to the Internet). Then monitor, search, react to, and archive your messages on Papertrail.com.

  1. Choose File > Setup to open the Kiwi Syslog Server Setup dialog box.
  2. Add or locate the rule that the action applies to.
  3. Right-click the Actions node below the rule, and choose Add Action.
  4. Replace the default name with a descriptive name. (The name does not have to be unique.)
  5. From the Action menu, select Log to Papertrail.com (cloud).

  6. Specify the following options.

    Papertrail Destination Hostname

    Enter the location where logs are sent from a syslog server. The destination host is provided by Papertrail. For example:

    logs2.papertrailapp.com

    Papertrail Destination Port

    Papertrail provides specific port number while creating a login with Papertrail. Use the same port number to send the syslog messages. For example:

    58612
