Hi, Mixxer

Yes, but it will require that the mailserver is stopped before you make the config changes.

Try these steps:

1: Create your new log directory
2: Stop the Kerio Connect service
3: Locate the installation directory of your Kerio Connect installation
4: take a copy of 'mailserver.cfg' and then when you have that copy, edit the original

You are looking for a line that reads:

<table name="LogGlobal">


The line after that has the full path to your logs folder.

Please be sure to take a copy before you make any edits, in case of an error.

If you find any problems with this, please log a ticket with support.

Lisa, thanks a lot for your kindly reply.
I don't have the mailserver.cfg file, perhaps it's because I'm already running the WinRoute Firewall 6.0.0.
Is there any way to make a change that I need ?
Thanks a lot !

Hi Mixxer,

Ah this issue is for WinRoute AKA Kerio Control. The same should apply to to winroute.cfg, however I do not have a install of Winroute 6.0.0 to confirm this. If you follow the same steps as above expect look for a file called winroute.cfg you should be ok. Like the previous post suggests be sure to take copies of the winroute.cfg before editing it.

Also just for future reference if you need any other help with WinRoute make sure you open posts in the Kerio Control forum as thats where Firewall queries/questions need to be posted to.

All the best,
Vicky

Vocky, sorry for this, but when I try to post a new topic <_at_> the Kerio COntrol forum, it ask me for usr/pwd again and again..
BTW.. I looked into the winroute.cfg file and there's no LogGlobal entry... Thanks a lot !

Hi Mixxer,

If you are having problems with post to the Control forum then you may need to contact forum admin. If you scroll to the bottom of this page there is a link that says 'Contact' use that and contact the admin as they should be able to hopefully solve the problem for you.

To bad about the .cfg file not having the option you need. Part of that is probably down to the install being a really old version.

All the best,
Vicky

OK, with regards to your password problem, I would recommend that you totally log out of this forum, delete the cookie for the forum from your browser, then log in again. That should allow you full access to this forum.

Regarding the winroute.cfg file, the log file directories are not defined there.

Please locate and copy the file logs.cfg from your Winroute/Control installation directory. It is there that you will find all of the log file definitions.

You need to edit the third line of this file, which defines the relative path to the log file root directory.

Everything else should fall into place after that.

Please bear in mind, you MUST stop the firewall before editing any of the files by hand.

Hi, Mixxer

Apologies for the late response. It's actually the first time I ever tried this with the Kerio Control product, and it is far easier within Kerio Connect. I wanted to just double check the syntax with our developers to be 100% certain I was giving you the right information.

To write all logs into directory 'c:\kerio\logs' change it to:

<variable name="RelativePathsRoot">c:\kerio\</variable>


This then re-writes the other paths, which use this one variable to write their own location.

Don't forget, you will need to create the new log directory first, before you make any changes.

Thanks again!
