I want to capture and analyze the logs from the router but have no idea how. The focus is the built-in firewall which AirPort Utility > Logging & Statistics tells me nothing about. From what i understand i can have the logs sent to my Mac so i set 'Syslog Destination Address to the IP of my Mac but now i'm stuck. Where do the logs show up? What tool do i use to read out these logs? Don't see anything in



Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 12-Core 3.06, 64GB RAM, SSD & 12TB
