FW-Watchguard service

The FW-Watchguard service provides a way for you to track the status of your firewall and generate notifications and trend reports on its activities.

You must configure your firewall to send syslog messages to the IP address of the Windows probe. The IP address of the firewall that is registered as a device in SolarWinds N-central must be the same as the IP address that sends SNMP traps to the probes.
