Step 2: Get your IP Address from the LucidView Data Analysis Portal in order to export your Netflow Logs. Please ensure that the source IP address used during the registration process is correct as only data from the registered IP address will be accepted on the Lucidview Netflow collector.

  • To get the IP Address to send Netflow logs to, click the view button of the collector you have created. This screen will show the information that is required to configure your Netflow collector.
