(Hybrid Module for Forcepoint Web Security) Provide the port that Sync Service uses to send hybrid log records to Log Server.

In an environment with multiple Policy Servers, configure the Logging page separately for each Policy Server instance. All Filtering Service instances associated with the active Policy Server send their log records to the Log Server identified on this page.
When working with multiple Policy Servers, note that:
*
*
This is typically the Policy Server installed with Policy Broker (for example, the Policy Server on the full policy source appliance).
*
*
Likewise, any changes you make to how categories are logged are shared by all Filtering Service and Log Server instances.
If your environment includes both multiple Policy Servers and multiple Log Servers, make sure you log on to each Policy Server separately, and verify that it is communicating with the correct Log Server.
1.
Enter the Log Server IPv4 address or hostname.
2.
Enter the Port that Filtering Service uses to send log records to Log Server (55805, by default).
3.
(Hybrid Module for Forcepoint Web Security) Enter the port that Sync Service uses to send log records from the hybrid service to Log Server.
4.
Click Check Status to determine whether the Forcepoint Security Manager is able to communicate with Log Server using the specified location and port.
A message indicates whether the connection test passed. Update the IP address or hostname and port, if needed, until the test is successful.

Name information is available in threat-related logs only. It is not available for Internet activity to which no severity is assigned.
6.
Use the Selective Category Logging list to indicate any URL categories that should not be logged. Changes made here apply to all category filters in all active policies.
 
Note 
*
Use the Find category search box to quickly jump to a specific category.
*

You must select or deselect each category separately. Selecting a parent category does not automatically select its subcategories. Use Select All and Clear All to assist with selections.
