Issue/Introduction

Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) is configured to forward events to an external logging server. Events from the Packet Logs or Custom IPS events are forwarded, however the raw packet information associated with them (which is visible in the SEPM) is not forwarded.

Resolution

This behavior is by design, because raw packet information is binary data, and can become very large in size.
