Pfsense Syslog Input Not Working

Graylog newbie here

I’ve successfully installed Graylog inside an Ubuntu VM. Now Im trying to add the my first input for it by connecting it to the Pfsense syslog (see screenshot below)

On the Pfsense side I’ve enabled syslog pointing to

I’m not getting any alerts coming into Graylog and hoping someone can tell me what I need to change


  1. Why did you point logs to (localhost)? It’s local adress of pfsense, it can’t work. Please change to real ip address of graylog VM.
  2. Pfsense by default send logs using syslog UDP. So point it to Graylog Input, which is type of Syslog UDP
