Configurations to Collect Messages and Write to File

Created 2003-04-04 by Wajih-ur-Rehman.

I want to have WinSyslog acting as a Central Server such that it can accept Syslog Messages and log them to a file. What configurations should i make?

You will create the following configuration settings for WinSyslog that will be acting as the central server for collecting all the messages:

  1. Right click on "Services" node and add "Syslog Server". A new node will be added under the Services node. Click on this newly added node and change the settings according to your requirements.
  2. When you install WinSyslog, it creates one RuleSet automatically. Right click on it, go to Rules and add a new Rule. You will see a new Rule under the Rule Set. 
  3. When you expand this newly created Rule, you will see two nodes under it. One is "Filter Condition" (by default, "No Filter" is selected.) and the other is "Actions". 
  4. Right click on Actions, and add "Write to File" action. and set the settings.
  5. Go back to the Service that you created in Step 1 and make sure that the RuleSet under which you have defined your own Rule in step 2 is attached to the service that you created in first step
