[ScreenOS] Configuring Email Alert Notifications for firewall devices



Article ID: KB4755 KB Last Updated: 20 Jun 2020Version: 6.0

This article discusses the default notification settings along with a step-by-step instructions on how to configure Email Alert Notifications for the NetScreen FW.


By default, emergency, alert, critical, and notification messages can be sent to an email address. Included in notification messages are traffic logs and configuration changes. However, due to security reasons, configuration changes are not designed to be sent via email. The only notification messages that are sent via email are traffic logs. Configuration change messages are only logged to the event log, internal on the device.

To configure email alert notifications on your NetScreen, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the WebUI. For more information on accessing the WebUI, go to Accessing Your NetScreen using the WebUI.

  2. From the ScreenOS options menu, click Configuration, select Report Settings, and then click Email.

  3. Click to select Enable E-mail Notification for Alarms.

  4. Click to select Include Traffic Log.

  5. Enter the SMTP Server Name.

  6. In the E-mail Address 1 and E-mail Address 2 text boxes, enter the email addresses you wish to receive notifications.

  7.  Click Apply.


Modification History:
2020-06-20: Replaced the old WebUI snapshots with new WebUI snaps and removed EOS devices.
