Mail notification target

In order to use the mail notification for Ethernet filter log generation, you need to configure the router with the "ethernet filter" and "ethernet I/F filter" commands.
When you specify "pass-log" or "reject(reject-log)" in the Ethernet filter function, a filter log is generated.
Mail notification is triggered when the interface and the direction of the filter from which the log is generated match the condition specified by the "mail notify trigger filter ethernet" command.

Interfaces that can be specified using a command

You can only specify the LAN interfaces using the "mail notify trigger filter ethernet" command.
You cannot specify a duplicated interface + direction for a single command.

Trigger detection

The content of filter detected after the first trigger is detected and before the time specified by the "notify-wait-time" option of the "mail template" command is sent out collectively in a single mail.
In addition, if other triggers with the same template ID specified by the "mail notify trigger filter ethernet" command occur before the wait time specified by the "mail template" command ("notify-wait-time" option), all triggers detected during the period are notified in a single mail.


Refer to the Command Reference for "Triggered Mail Notification Function".

Settings Examples

Configure the Ethernet filter using "DHCP Authentication" as a reference.
Here, you configure the mail server, mail template, and triggers.
After the configuration is completed, a mail notification is sent out when a filter log is generated by the Ethernet filter.
