Syslog Server

By clarkd038 ·
I am looking to send messages from event logs to a syslog server. I have downloaded the free version of Kiwi Syslog server and installed the program on a server.

Now I don't know how to begin sending the messages to the server from the "clients" which are running server '03. Is there an agent that I have to install or is there another way through server '03 to point syslog messages to an IP address.

Help would be rewarded

This action will send an e-mail message to the recipients specified whenever a Syslog message is received that matches the filters set.

Details from the Syslog message received and other Syslog statistics can be included in the e-mail subject or message body. In effect this program can be used as a Syslog to e-mail converter.

Firstly, ensure that you have set the SMTP server options via the e-mail options.

Specify the e-mail recipient's address in the E-mail recipient field. More than one address can be specified. Each address must be separated by a comma.

Specify the e-mail subject in the E-mail subject field. (Single line only). The Max subject length option can be used to ensure that only a limited number of characters are sent in the subject line.

Specify the e-mail message in the E-mail message field. (Multiple lines may be used). If this message is intended for an e-mail to pager gateway, then the message body part of the e-mail may not be used. In this case you can just leave it blank. Most paging systems only have limited space so they only use the subject part of the message. The Max message length option can be used to limit the amount of data sent in the message body. If you have used the variable %MsgText in the message body and a large syslog message arrives, it may be too large to send via e-mail. You can limit the message body length to a more manageable length.

The Test button will send a test e-mail message to the specified recipients. The content of the test message can be modified by pressing the Test Setup button.

The gotcha part

This feature is only available in the licensed version.
