Obtain Syslog on the Default Port

These instructions explain how to add and accept NetMon as a new log source in LogRhythm Enterprise so that you can receive Syslog on the default port (514). For instructions on how to configure LogRhythm Enterprise and NetMon for a non-default Syslog port, see Settle Syslog Port to Non-Default Value in LogRhythm Enterprise.
