    • Log Server Type – Select Syslog NG.
    • IP Address or Hostname – Enter the IP address or the hostname of the syslog NG server.
    • Port – Enter the port associated with the IP address of the syslog NG server.

    • Validate Server Certificate – Set to Yes to validate the syslog server certificate using the internal bundle of Certificate Authority's (CAs) certificates packaged with the system. If set to No, any certificate from the syslog server is accepted.
    • Client Certificate – When set to Yes, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall presents the certificate while connecting to the syslog server.
    • Certificate – Select a certificate for the Barracuda Web Application Firewall to present when connecting to the syslog server. Certificates can be uploaded on the BASIC > Certificates page. For more information on how to upload a certificate, see How to Add an SSL Certificate.
