CENTRAL LOG TRACKER SERVER PRE-REQUISITES

SYSTEM ELEMENT RECOMMENDED
CPU Intel® Core™2 Duo
Memory 4GB
Disk Free 10GB (200GB+ for production systems)
Operating System Windows 2003/7/2008 with all service packs

• TCP Service Ports The system requires control of a single TCP service port, normally port 80 or port 443 for an HTTPS
implementation, but possibly any other port selected by the user, during the install process. The installer attempts to auto-
detect a free service port. Port blocking and virus protection programs (in particular McAfee Virus Scan) may interfere with
this.
• UDP Service Ports The system requires control of two UDP service ports: port 514 is used for listening for Syslog
messages, and port 162 is used for listening for SNMP Trap messages. These two service ports must be free at the time of
installation, or the program will not operate properly. In addition you should consider enabling TCP Port 55514 which
provides a Remote Configuration channel for remote Log Tracker Agents

REMOTE SERVER/WORKSTATION PRE-REQUISITES

SYSTEM ELEMENT RECOMMENDED
CPU Any – Usage will less than 1%
Memory Less than 1MB
Disk Free Less than 0.5GB
Operating System Any Windows or Unix platform

• UDP Service Ports The system requires control of UDP service port 514 for sending Syslog messages. This service
port must be free at the time of installation, or the program will not operate properly. In addition you should
consider enabling TCP Port 55514 which provides a Remote Configuration channel for remote Log Tracker
Agents.

for Windows Server 2008. Both Vista and 2008 have version 7 of IIS, which has a different management API - for
NNT Online Manager to work properly we request that you turn on IIS6 Management Compatibility.

FIREWALL/ROUTER PRE-REQUISITES
Firewalls and Network devices should be enabled to send syslog messages to the NNT Log Tracker server IP
Address.
Typical Cisco configuration as follows
logging on
no logging console
no logging monitor
logging (ipaddr – insert your NNT Log Tracker address here)
logging trap information
Note that the above procedure will need to be modified for Cisco PIX Firewall devices, Cisco CSS devices, Cisco
WAP, and other specific models.
Firewall rules will be required in order to ensure UDP 514 traffic can be passed, and as an option, Agent
Configuration Channel Traffic TCP 55514 traffic can also be passed
For File Integrity Monitoring (Firewall Configuration File/Rules Files) it is necessary to provide SSH Telnet
access to the device from the Change Tracker Server.
An appropriate account should be provisioned with Read-Only Access but the necessary credentials to use the
‘Privilege’ or ‘Enable’ mode for the device to execute a ‘show running-config’ type command.
