Setting McAfee SIEM Collector Mgmt Utility and Advenced Syslog Parser

Hello,

I'm trying to create an Oracle client on the SIEM Collector, that will send syslog messages to ESM receiver (shown on the first image below).

I must be doing something wrong, because I don't get anything on the receiver.

Also I followed the manual for writing custom parsing rules, but when I get to the step (chapter 3.3 in the manual) of enabling the new rule, there isn't any under the wanted data source (shown on the second image below).

Any assistance is more than welcome.

Thanks.

The SIEM Collector uses the MEF protocol to communicate with the ERC.  You should change "Data Retrieval" to "MEF" before you'll see any data.

also log unknown events in case SIEM can't parse by default.
