Recording Issues Using the Cato Client

This article explains how to use the Cato Client to record issues to help Cato Support troubleshoot the issues.


Sometimes users experience issues while using the Client and Cato needs the logs to help understand and resolve the issue. The Client Self Service tool records data on the device while the user replicates the issue. The logs from this recording can then be provided to the Support team. By receiving only the data from the period when the issue was replicated, the Support team can quickly identify the exact issue reducing the need for additional questions. The recording can last for up to five minutes.

Use Case - Supporting Troubleshooting

A user tries to connect to the network from the Client, however cannot progress past the authentication stage. To help review and troubleshoot the issue, the user starts the recording on the Client and then replicates the issue. The self service tool records the device data and then saved it to logs which are uploaded to the Cato Support team to investigate.

The logs show that the device does have the required certificate to match the Client Connectivity Policy. The admin can now resolve the issue and install the certificate.


  • Supported from Windows Client v5.5 and higher
  • While recording, the Client must have internet access to uploaded logs to Cato Support
