FAQ for Install Issues

  • If Link Logger stops logging check to see if the IP address of the logging system has changed as sometime the DHCP server will assign a new IP address to the system running Link Logger and hence will not receive the logging information.

  • 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 software firewall 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.
