What is the procedure to change the syslog server port?

Scenario

 

I have a syslog server in the LAN site using port 20287. However, the device is using the default port 514.

What is the procedure to change the port number on the device?

Step

 

Since the syslog server is using port 514, this could not be changed previously.

Please request the latest firmware which allows this feature and then use the CLI command to change the port number.

 

1. Set port:

Router(config)# logging syslog 1 port 20287----->change the syslog server 1 port as 20287

server '1' port:20287----->save configuration

2. Reset port:

Router(config)# no logging syslog 1 port----->reset syslog server 1 port as 514

Router(config)# write----->save configuration

3. Show:

Router(config)# show logging status----->show all of the syslog server stats

Verification

 

After changing the port number, you can check the packets on the device.

The port number will become 20287.
