I have Log Management Enabled, currently Low Level with all three options enabled however both incoming and outgoing logs remain empty. What obvious part am I missing to view incoming/outgoing logs here. Thanks!

You also have to enable syslogd on Services tab (and there you can set an external log server if you want to).

I think the priority of connection logging is askew and you have to think backwards. I would have to dig through forum posts and tickets about this.

@kgw: What is the purpose of your question? The OP is troubleshooting why things aren't being logged; the logs themselves aren't required.

The wiki states:
Quote:
Logging is probably disabled by default. To enable it:

Enable Syslogd under the Services tab.
If you wish to send logs to a remote system, enter the IP address of that machine which is also running a syslog utility (it needs an open network socket in order to accept logs being sent by the router).
To log firewall events, go to the Security tab and enable the appropriate options under Log Management. (Note: this doesn't function in micro)

That's all there is to it. DD-WRT should now be logging...either locally to /tmp/var/log/messages, or remotely to the IP address you specified earlier.
