how to use syslog watcher with tplink router W8960N
I have a long-standing problem with my broadband internet connection where once every few weeks it has a "bad day" and drops the connection a lot. I've replaced the modem with a TPLINK W8960N and the local phone company have installed a splitter and they have also swapped me to a different pair of wires that go to the cabinet a couple of blocks away where the connection changes to fibre.
I've discovered that the router has a diagnostics logging option which lets me log errors to a local queue and also to a remote device. I've installed syslog watcher from snmpsoft on my PC but I can't get any messages to appear in the syslog watcher window.
I don't know how to configure syslog watcher to get this to work. My router lets me configure an IP address for remote logging and a UDP port. The UDP port defaults to 514 and matches what syslog watcher is expecting. What IP address am I supposed to put? IPConfig tells me the "Ethernet Adaptor Local Area Connection" has an IPV4 address of 192.168.15.100 and a default gateway of 192.168.15.1. I've tried both of these and neither seem to work.
In syslog watcher, I start it in the mode "manage local syslog server" - is that correct? - or should I run it as a "standalone application" ?
On the router, I can see messages such as "kernel intrusion" turning up in the log but nothing appears in the syslog watcher window. Any ideas how to get it working?
