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 email@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.
