Configuration Change Logging


You are a student and enrolled in a network engineer program. At the moment you are a trainee at a company that is very suspicious at security. They want you to configure their router so all changes are logged.


  • Configure router SharpEyes so all changes to the running configuration are logged locally.
  • You should use syslog but make sure passwords don’t show up when changes are logged.
