Integrating Rapid7 Logentries with
Send Text and SMS Messages from Rapid7 Logentries
PageGate can be easily integrated with Rapid7's Logentries by using PageGate's GetMail interface.
GetMail gives PageGate the ability to receive an email and translate that in to an SMS, page, update to a web API, etc, and Logentries has the ability to send an email when an alert needs to be sent.
First, we'll need to configure the GetMail interface to accept messages.
1) Right click on the PG Admin shortcut and select 'Run as Administrator'
1a) If prompted by the UAC, allow the process to continue.
2) Go to Interfaces - GetMail - Settings.
3) Check Enabled.
4) PageGate will accept messages addressed to the domain referenced in the 'Local Domain' field.
For example, if PageGate is installed on a system whose internal IP is accessible from the Logentries system, you could use the internal IP address of the PageGate server in the 'Local Domain' field. If you do so, you would address email to PageGate as <recipient or group>@<internal IP. Example: IT_Alerts@192.168.1.175
You can also create an email sub-domain or domain and redirect its A and MX records to the PageGate server. For example, let's say we have the domain 'something.com'. We could create 'alert.something.com' or 'sms.something.com' and redirect it to the PageGate server. When you do, use the domain or sub-domain value in the 'Local Domain' field.
The rest of the settings aren't related to bringing traffic in to the program, so we won't need to configure anything else here.
5) Click Apply.
5a) If prompted, you do want this enabled for all of the recipients and groups.
6) Go to Program - Settings.
7) Check 'GetMail' in the 'Run on this Server' section.
8) Click Apply.
9) If prompted for credentials, leave them blank and click Apply again.
Once you have PageGate ready to receive the email from Logentries, you can configure Logentries to email your PageGate contacts to send SMS.
