Linksys Link Logger Set Up

 

1.Download and Install Link Logger

 

2. Next Configure Link Logger

To find this screen select 'Edit' from the main menu and then select the 'Setup...' option and click on the 'Router' tab.  The Router Address is the internal LAN IP address of your Linksys Router (192.168.1.1 by default).

 

3. Configure the Linksys Router to Log Traffic and send it to Link Logger

Note setting the 'Send Log to:' field to 192.168.1.255 will instruct the Linksys Router to broadcast its logging information to all systems on the LAN.  We recommend this as most people use the DHCP service within their Linksys Router, which can change the IP address of their logging computer.  You can set the 'Send Log to:' address to the system which is running Link Logger (192.168.1.100 for example), if your confident that the IP address isn't go to change or otherwise send your logging information to the wrong computer.

 

4. Link Logger should start logging your traffic.

 

FAQ for Install Issues

  • If you get an error when starting Link Logger, please make sure that you don't have other logging software running when you start Link Logger, as only one application can process SNMPTrap messages at a time.

  • If Link Logger doesn't work and your running ZoneAlarm or any similar product please ensure that it is allowing communication between Link Logger and your Linksys Router.  Link Logger does attempt to ping your router on startup, and your Linksys Router sends its logging information to Link Logger via SNMPTrap messages (UDP port 162).  If the ping is blocked then Link Logger displays a message stating that it couldn't communicate with the Router.  If the SNMPTrap messages are blocked then Link Logger doesn't log anything as it doesn't receive any logging information.

  • It is possible that you have the wrong version of Link Logger installed (meaning Protocol / nonProtocol logging version) for your Linksys product.  Please see Link Logger Versions for more information pertaining to this issue.

  • Link Logger does have an uninstall program for easy removal.  You can remove Link Logger using 'Remove Programs' in the Windows Control Panel.
