Router, Antivirus, and Firewall Log Emailing

I have all my Logs from my Firewall, antivirus and router logs sent to me every day.

For this I used

NETGEAR WGR614v8(Comcast gave me).

Avast(I use the free it work nice).

hMailServer(Very cool Mail Server for windows)

For the Server I’m using IP: and port(s), 25, 110, and 143. Now Install hMail Server on a windows Computer after installing it,

Log into the admin panel

  1. Domains
  2. Click “Add”
  3. Domain: homenetwork.local
  4. Click “Save”
  5. Under Domains “homenetwork.local” click “Accounts”
  6. Click “Add”
  7. Address: network
  8. Password: thepassword
  9. Maximum size (MB): 25 (That will do for now)
  10. Click “Save”
  11. Your set just Config your Email client to this server

Now Install Avast on Computers

Then after its done installing…

Restart -> Right click the blue “a-ball” in the bottom right corner of the screen, then left click “Program Settings..” -> STMP.

Then we just add our new Mail Server’s info.

  1. Server address:
  2. Port: 25
  3. From address: PC-NAMEHERE-advast@homenetwork.local
  4. SMTP server requires authentication: Cheak Box
  5. User name: network@homenetwork.local
  6. Password: thepassword
  7. Click ok

Right click the blue “a-ball” in the bottom right corner of the screen, then left click “Program Settings..” -> Alerts.

  1. Click “Add” then SMTP
  2. Net alert address:  network@homenetwork.local
  3. Click ok
  4. Then Click “Test all”

There you have emails when your computer get’s a Vrius.

Now in my Router I set it up to send the router logs aswell

  1. (This is the ip of the netgear I have)
  2. Login -> admin -> Password
  3. Then when logged in go to -> Email
  4. Click “Turn E-mail Notification On”
  5. Your Outgoing Mail Server:
  6. Send To This E-mail Address: network@homenetwork.local
  7. Click “My Mail Server requires authentication”
  8. User Name: network@homenetwork.local
  9. Password: thepassword
  10. Click “Apply”

Now you have your router sending you emails when issues comes up.

Now I have also set this up on my SonicWall TZ 180 But cause most of you don’t have $400+ for a SonicWall I don’t think your going to need to know how to set that up.

The Firewall Emails:

12/18/2009 01:55:30.433 - 	Gateway Anti-Virus Alert: OnlineGames.ZWG (Trojan) blocked -, 57135, WAN -, 52568, LAN -
12/18/2009 00:32:17.216 - 	Possible port scan detected -, 443, WAN -, 64929, WAN - 	TCP scanned port list, 64913, 64919, 64923, 64925, 64927

and I have not had a virus so, the only email I got was the test email
