Enable Logging for Firebox Cloud
You can enable Firebox Cloud to send log messages to WatchGuard Cloud or WatchGuard Dimension™. Both WatchGuard Cloud and Dimension are virtual visibility and management solutions you can use to see Firebox log data in real-time, track it across your network, view the source and destination of the traffic, view log message details of the traffic, monitor threats to your network, and view reports of the traffic.
Configure Logging to WatchGuard Cloud
To enable Firebox Cloud to send log messages to WatchGuard Cloud, you can add your Firebox Cloud to WatchGuard Cloud. When you enable WatchGuard Cloud, the Firebox sends log messages to WatchGuard Cloud in addition to any other log servers you configure. After you activate a Firebox Cloud license on the WatchGuard portal, you can add the Firebox Cloud instance to your WatchGuard Cloud account.
For more information, see Add a Firebox to WatchGuard Cloud.
Firebox Cloud is not supported for WatchGuard Cloud with a PAYG license.
Configure Logging to Dimension
If you have an instance of Dimension, you can configure Firebox Cloud to send log messages to Dimension.
To configure Firebox Cloud to send log messages to your instance of Dimension:
- Select System > Logging.
- Select the Send log messages to these WatchGuard Log Servers check box.
- In the Log Servers list, add the IP address of your instance of Dimension.
If your instance of Dimension is behind another Firebox, specify the external IP address of the Firebox that protects your instance of Dimension.
- Type and confirm the Authentication Key for your instance of Dimension.
- Click Save.
If your instance of Dimension is behind another Firebox, make sure that the configuration file of the Firebox that protects Dimension includes a WG-Logging policy to allow traffic from the external interface to a static NAT action that translates the public IP address of the Firebox to the private IP address of Dimension. For an example of how to set up this policy, see the Video Tutorial Getting Started with WatchGuard Dimension.
