Setting up Sophos UTM Collector

  • Last updated on

This setup is for the XDR Collector only. If you are using a physical or virtual sensor, refer to Integrating Sophos UTM.

To set up Sophos UTM Collector, follow the procedures below:

  • Enable Sophos UTM Collector
  • Install the XDR Collector
  • Configure the Firewall
  • Open the port on the XDR Collector Host

Enable Sophos UTM Collector

  1. In Barracuda XDR Dashboard, navigate to Administration >  Integrations.
  2. On the Sophos UTM Collector card, click Setup.
  3. Select the Enabled check box.
  4. Click Save.

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

  1. In Sophos UTM Firewall, click System services Log settings.

  2. Click Add.

  3. Enter a name.

  4. Specify the settings like the graphic below.


  5. Type 9207 in the Port field .

  6. Click Save.

  7. Go to Log settings and select the logs you want to send to the syslog server.

For more information, see the Sophos Firewall Documentation:

Open the Port on the XDR Collector Host

Ensure incoming traffic is allowed on UDP port 9207.


sudo ufw allow 9207/udp


netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“Sophos UTM Firewall Events” dir=in action=allow protocol=UDP localport=9207
