Tectia Server logs events in the syslog
on Unix and in the Windows Event Log on
Windows. Logging (auditing) is very important for security. You should check your logs often,
or use tools to analyze them. From the logs, you can see, for example, whether unauthorized
access has been attempted, and take further action if needed. For example, you could set the
hosts from which the attempts have been made as denied, or drop the packets from the domain
completely at your firewall. The logs also provide troubleshooting information.
The log events are classified in seven levels, in decreasing order of importance:
A user tried to log on but failed.
A user logged successfully on.
A critical problem has occurred. By default, this is not used by Tectia Server.
A serious problem has occurred, preventing the intended operation from completing successfully.
A problem has occurred, but the operation can continue.
An action has been done.
