It goes in the configuration GUI of the client. Rick Stout's page will walk
you through with screenshots. It may seem old (last update was for FC5) but
the GUI configuration has barely changed since then.

If you still have problems then check the FAQ link in the footer for
instructions on enabling logging on the server.
