If a custom port number is not entered, Syslog over TLS defaults to TCP port 6514.

While the Message Format appears as a dropdown, the only available selection is "Syslog over TLS (RFC 5425)".

Next, click browse to locate and upload a new trusted certificate. When finished, click Submit.


You must upload a new certificate whenever your current certificate expires. Otherwise you may experience a disruption in the syslog events being captured.
