Secure Connector Logging

  • Last updated on

The Secure Connector creates logs for all system processes. By default, all log files on the Secure Connector are written to a temporary partition in volatile memory that is reset every time the device is rebooted. You can also configure the Secure Connector to stream the logs to the Control Center syslog server. For troubleshooting purposes, you can enable persistent logging directly to the SD card of the Secure Connector. Enabling persistent logging is not recommended because it decreases the lifetime of the SD card.

  • /var/phion/logs/c3c.log – Log file for the communication between Secure Connectors and the Control Center.
  • /var/phion/logs/cudavpn.log – Secure Connector VPN service log file.
  • /var/phion/logs/scactl.log – Web UI log file
  • /var/phion/logs/shorewall/shorewall.log – Logs connections denied by the Secure Connector Firewall service.
  • /var/phion/logs/shorewall/shorewall-init.log – Log file containing firewall activation logs.

Syslog Streaming

Syslog streaming to the Control Center allows you to process the log files using the Control Center syslog service. Syslog streaming allows you to store log files directly on the Control Center. The Secure Connector streams over UDP port 5144. The port can be changed if an external syslog server is used as the streaming target. The following log files are streamed:

  • c3c.log
  • controld.log
  • scactl.log
  • scad.log
  • cudavpn.log
  • UMTS.log
