Syslogs server setup (can I push to FTP?)

  • as the title says - I have a NAS device on my network. Can I push my system logs & firewall logs to this? I have been getting a lot of random hack attempts and I'd like to start keeping accurate logs of dates, times, IPs, etc. so that I can report them to the ISPs as well as track for myself.


    The NAS has 6TB so space isn't an issue. Honestly the more logs the better.

    Unless your NAS can act as a syslog server, then no. Periodic copies of logs would not be ideal for many reasons, the main one being that you can't guarantee you'd capture all events between copies because they could scroll out of the clog file.
