Rafale looking at your mods, I'm struggling to see how you have modified Log rotation?  I'm wanting to store rather more logs for troubleshooting. Can you explain?

Many thanks

Another option if you want to store more logs is to just have the log rotation script FTP it to your own server vs the MIOS servers. It is a trivial change to make it work .  I have years of log files stored on my NAS.

yes that is in the servers.conf file I think. You can also edit the /etc/hosts file to point to your own FTP server.  create a user/pass matching the config file. I posted this a couple of years ago :

Each FW update may reset the configuration to default however.
