By default, SolarWinds Syslog Service listens for syslog messages on port 514 (UDP). If your devices use a different port for sending syslog messages, consider reconfiguring the port on devices, or change the port on which the service listens.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Go to Advanced Configuration settings. Copy /Admin/AdvancedConfiguration/Global.aspx, and paste it into your browser address bar, after /Orion.

    The address in the address bar should look as follows:

    <your product server>/Orion/Admin/AdvancedConfiguration/Global.aspx

  3. On the Global tab, scroll down to SyslogService.SyslogSettings, and enter the UDP port number in the UDPListenPort entry.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Restart the syslog service from the notification bar or the Orion Service Manager.
