<!-- object_type: admin object_action: add_log_server --> <H2>SLOP Help: adding a log server</H2> <H3>How to get to this page:</H3> <UL> <LI> Login to SLOP using an account with administrator privledges <LI> Once logged in, select one of your Checkpoint Firewall-1 objects to work with <LI> After you have selected an object and are in the main interface, click the <B>Administration page</B> link under the Internet Security banner. If you do not see this link, you are not logged in with an administrator account. <LI> On the administration page, click the "Add log server" link. </UL> <H3>Adding a log server:</H3> This is a fairly simple process. Complete the following fields: <UL> <LI> <B>Server name</B>: Name or nickname of the logging server for future identification <LI> <B>Hostname</B>: IP address or fully qualified domain name of the logging server that SLOP can use to connect to the server <LI> <B>Username</B>: Username that SLOP can use to login to the server <LI> <B>Password</B>: Preferrably you can configure ssh on the server running SLOP to communicate with the logging server using public/private keys without passwords (see manpage for ssh-keygen). If you can\'t do this, enter a password here so the user running your slop perl scripts can login to the logging server. </UL> When the form has been filled out, click the "Add Log Server" button. As with the other forms, try to not use characters that could be escapes or wildcards (*/\$%@&). <P> After submitting the form, SLOP will verify the information is acceptable and notify you of success or failure.
