Sort in reverse chronological order Check the Sort in reverse chronological order checkbox if you want to see recent events at the top of a page, rather than at the bottom.

Lines per page Select the number of log entries to display on a page from the Lines per page drop down menu. This can vary from between 15 and 500. Be aware that a large number of lines will take longer to process and display on slower hardware.

Log archive You can choose how long logs are kept on IPCop. The default is 8 weeks (56 days), but you can increase or decrease this period depending on your needs, and the amount of disk space available.

Keep summaries for n days You can choose how long the logwatch summaries are kept on IPCop. If you are short of disk space, reduce the number of days.

Detail level You can choose between Low, Medium and High levels of detail in the logwatch summaries from the Detail level drop down menu.

Remote logging Select the Enabled checkbox to allow logging to a remote syslog server.

Specify the FQDN or IP Address of the remote server in the Syslog server field provided. All logs will be forwarded to that server.

You can change the logging protocol to TCP/514, instead of UDP/514, if required. UDP is the default.

Remember to click the Save button after making any changes.
