Linksys WRT Products running SveaSoft Satori Firmware 

Link Logger Set Up

NOTE the default Linksys firmware does not support external logging tools as Linksys disabled that functionality within their firmware so you must run a third party firmware such as HyperWRT or Sveasoft or other similar third party firmware in order for your Linksys to support external logging tools like Link Logger.


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 ( by default).


3. Configure the Linksys SveaSoft Satori to log traffic and send it to Link Logger

There are 3 things which must be done here

1. Enable Syslogd and enter the IP Address of the system running Link Logger.

2. Enable Telnet as you need it to 'install' a script which will enable your Linksys to send its logs to the system running Link Logger.

3. Open a Telnet into the Linksys (ie in Windows open a DOS session and enter 'telnet', remember the userid is 'root' and the password is your Linksys password) and enter the following white bold text (I included the prompts and such in a small black font so you would have some reference as to where this text goes):

BusyBox v1.00-pre9 (2004.06.30-23:34+0000) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(none): [~]#
/usr/sbin/iptables -R INPUT 6 -j logdrop
(none): [~]# nvram set rc_firewall='#!/bin/sh
> /usr/sbin/iptables -R INPUT 1 -j logdrop -m state --state INVALID
> /usr/sbin/iptables -R INPUT 6 -j logdrop
> '
(none): [~]# nvram committ
(none): [~]#

4. Recommend disabling Telnet on the Administration page if you don't need it.


FAQ for Install Issues

  • If Link Logger stops logging check to see if the IP address of the logging system has changed as sometime the DHCP will assign a new IP address to the system running Link Logger and hence will not receive the logging information.

  • 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 Syslog 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 Syslog messages (UDP port 514).  If the ping is blocked then Link Logger displays a message stating that it couldn't communicate with the Router.  If the Syslog messages are blocked then Link Logger doesn't log anything as it doesn't receive any logging information.

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