Link Logger Set Up

NOTE you must be running at least Netgear firmware version 1.4 release 17


1.Download and Install Link Logger


2. Next Configure Link Logger

To find this screen select 'Edit' from the main menu and then select the 'Setup...' option and click on the 'Router' tab.  The Router Address is the internal LAN IP address of your NetGear Firewall ( by default).


3. Configure the Netgear ProSafe Firewall to log Traffic and send it to Link Logger

There are 2 things which have to done here.

1. Enable Syslog by selecting either 'Broadcast on LAN' which sends the logging information to every system on your LAN or 'Send to this Syslog server IP address' which needs to be the LAN IP address of the system running Link Logger.

2. Enable logging of 'All incoming and Outbound traffic' and any other options you wish.  'All websites and news groups visited' and 'Attempted access to blocked sites' information appears in Link Logger's 'Content Filter' Report all other non traffic related information will appear in Link Logger's Messages Report.  NOTE we suggest caution in enabling 'Local activity' as it can generate a lot of messages in the Messages Report.

3. Link Logger should start logging your traffic (you might need to exit and restart Link Logger).


FAQ for Install Issues

  • If you get an error when starting Link Logger, please make sure that you don't have other logging software running when you start Link Logger, as only one application can process Syslog messages at a time.

  • If Link Logger doesn't work and your running ZoneAlarm or any similar product please ensure that it is allowing communication between Link Logger and your Linksys Router.  Link Logger does attempt to ping your router on startup, and your Linksys Router sends its logging information to Link Logger via Syslog messages (UDP port 514).  If the ping is blocked then Link Logger displays a message stating that it couldn't communicate with the Router.  If the Syslog messages are blocked then Link Logger doesn't log anything as it doesn't receive any logging information.

  • Link Logger does have an uninstall program for easy removal.  You can remove Link Logger using 'Remove Programs' in the Windows Control Panel.
