About the log

The log records information about your file transfer server. When an error occurs or you encounter unexpected behavior, you can use the log to track down the error and diagnose its cause. For more information, see Viewing the Log.

WS_FTP Server can send log entries to an Ipswitch Log Server, a syslog server, or both.

If you have multiple file transfer servers, you can configure them all to write to the same log server. For more information, see Logging multiple servers to one log server.
