Free Syslog Server

Joshua Wood Joshua Wood Profile: Joshua Wood

Hi all,

As technology changes so does our expectation of the free software that is out there. WhatsUpGold has a free syslog server that is looks pretty good (in the short amount of time that I have used it at least). From the link below I downloaded the free syslog service and installed it on my Windows Server 2008 server. Immediately it started picking up the devices that had their logging directed to it. A solid starting point for sure.

The software has features for sorting through all of the logging as well. Also among the features is to run the syslog as a service or application and basic alerting. For a small shop that is looking for the basics it is all there for you.

Until next time,
TechStop (JW)
