    The logs are reset at boot time. It's done that way on purpose.

    If you want to keep the logs, you should setup a syslog server and direct them to a separate server where they can be kept indefinitely.



  • good morning jimp,

    which progs are good for windows syslogging with pfsense?

    http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Copying_Logs_to_a_Remote_Host_with_Syslog

    thanks forward



  • a good one is:
    Syslog Watcher for Windows

    and you can read the logs in pfsense terminal with command: clog /var/log/…

    thanks
