Server Security alert forwarding to event viewer

I am trying to configure alert forwarding from Policy manager. I want to forward alerts (severity error, fatal error, security alerts) to event viewer (i suppose they mean Windows event log?) but in which log are they supposed to show up? I cannot find any log entries in any windows event log that i have been looking in.

    Hello svennebanan,

     

    > in which log are they supposed to show up? 

    In Windows Application log on the client machine.

     

    > If you want to forward to a log file, how do you do that?

    Use "Local user interface" column to configure the alerts which will be shown in a log file. The log file is located here: Program Files (x86)\F-Secure\Common\logfile.log

     

    Best regards,

    Vad

  • Another question. From the policy manager manual  this can be read about alert forwarding: 

     

    "The target can be Policy Manager Console, the local user interface, an alert agent (such as the Event viewer, a log file, or SMTP), or a management extension."

     

    If you want to forward to a log file, how do you do that?
