Sophos XG firewall: usefull shell commands

I’m beginning to collect shell commands also for XG firewall, so this article will be updated as they are learned 🙂


Find raw text log files:

Location: /var/tslog/ and symbolic link just /log


SMTP logfiles:

Live logs:

cd /log

tail -f /log/awarrensmtp.log for Legacy mode

tail -f /log/awarrenmta.log for MTA mode

Check the status of Awarrensmtp service:

#service awarrensmtp:status –ds  nosync (Should show 200 RUNNING)
To get  debug logs:
# service awarrensmtp:debug –d –s nosync
