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.

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

Re: Server Security alert forwarding to event viewer

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?
