Overview

This article describes how to monitor Windows firewall logs in the LEM Web Console.

Environment

Steps

  1. Install the LEM agent on the Windows nodes where you want to monitor the Windows Firewall.
  2. Follow MS recommendations on how to configure Windows firewall logging for different OS versions.
  3. Verify that you can view the logs in the log files.
  4. In the LEM Web Console, go to Manage > Nodes.
