Send syslog using different interface

I have TZ600 and TZ500 directly connect with cable on port X#. I have 1 server on TZ600 side acting as syslog server. I have server1, server2 on same network with TZ500.

If I put a routing [Any -> TZ500 networks then use TZ500 ip] then it works. However, if I change [Any] to [Group of devices/TZ600 IP] to restrict access of server1,server2, it does not work.

I want to send syslog from ONLY TZ500 to TZ600. I dont have tunnel between TZ500 and TZ600. Is that possible?

Can someone help me?

  • Hello @Imperial,

    Welcome to SonicWall community.

    Based on the syslog server address, the SonicWall checks how it can reach that address and uses the interface IP through which it is reachable as the source address on the syslog messages sent.

    I do not understand how the routing is done and what is the exact requirement. Could you please elaborate or may be share a network diagram and let us know the end goal so that we can help you ahead.

    Look forward to hearing back from you.
