Creating a sample WinSyslog 4.2 configuration

In this online Seminar, Wajih-ur-Rehman uses a freshly installed copy of WinSyslog and has it write to a text file as well as generate email alerts if a specifc string is present inside the message.

The specific requirements achieved during this session are:

  • WinSyslog will receive syslog messages over the standard port of 514/UDP
  • All received messages should be stored to the local file system. There should be one file for each device that is sending syslog messages
  • Messages containing the string "Alert" should generate an email alert to admin@example.com

This is a common scenario often asked for. Besides the actual configuration, the seminar gives a good idea on how the configuration client can be used to configure rule sets. It also shows how multiple actions can be configured in a single rule set.
