There are 2 things which have to done here.
1. Enable Syslog by selecting either 'Broadcast

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
