Re: mcafee web gateway syslog file

Hi Amahmoud,

Perhaps the log you're thinking of is /var/log/messages? Or perhaps the access.log under Troubleshooting > Log Files > User-Defined-Logs > access.log (/opt/mwg/log/user-defined-logs/access.log/)

Though if you have things configured as described in the syslog best practice, you wont see messages in /var/log/messages, and the format may vary depending on who is consuming the syslog messages.

Best Regards,
