Orion listens for Syslog messages on port 514 (UDP). You can configure this port in the SyslogService.exe.config file, as indicated in the following procedure.

Running the configuration wizard will revert any and all changes made to the SyslogService.exe.config file. If you run the configuration wizard, you must repeat this procedure to restore your required port setting.

  1. Log in to your Server using an account with administrative privileges.
  2. Open SyslogService.exe.config in a text editor.

    By default, SyslogService.exe.config is located in C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\Orion\SyslogService\.

  3. Locate the following line:

    <add key="UDPListenPort" value="514">

  4. Edit value="514" as required to indicate the port on which your monitored devices are configured to send Syslog messages to your Server.
  5. Save SyslogService.exe.config.
