You can only change these settings if there's no network connectivity for your VM. Otherwise, make the changes in Sophos Central.

This setting is only available if you have a third-party appliance-based integration.

If you add a third-party integration to the VM, it acts as a syslog server. This means that it takes data from your network environment and forwards it to the Sophos Data Lake.

To find out more about syslog and how to set it up on Sophos switches, using the local Switch web user interface, refer to the Sophos Switch documentation. See Log.

IPv4 configuration

You can assign a static IP address for the appliance. To do this, do as follows:

  1. Go to Settings > SYSLOG.
  2. In IPv4/Netmask, enter the IP address and subnet mask of the server.

    The IP address must have the subnet mask in CIDR format. For more information, see CIDR notation.

  3. Click Save.

    SYSLOG assign IP address.
