Install the XDR Collector

When collecting logs from one or more integrated data sources, always set up the XDR Collector on a dedicated host server. Don't use an existing server because the amount of data produced by logs can impact critical infrastructure.

Configure the Firewall

Syslog servers can be defined in the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) Collector. Choose Configuration > Device Management > Logging > Syslog Servers.

  1. Click Add a syslog server and enter the following:
    • Specify the interface that the server is associated with.
    • IP Address: The static IP address of the system hosting the XDR Collector.
    • Specify the protocol: UDP
    • UDP port: 9220
  2. Click OK.

You can find more documentation at the following:

Open the Port on the XDR Collector Host

Ensure incoming traffic is allowed on UDP port 9220.


sudo ufw allow 9220/udp


netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Cisco ASA Firewall Events" dir=in action=allow protocol=UDP localport=9220
