That won't work. You are going to have to use a 3rd party Syslog Server
like Kiwi Syslog Daemon which will do everything you need, including
emailing alerts, but not freeware.
If you find anything else on the freeware side, could you let me know? I
have a list of people looking for a freeware utility for emailing alerts
on Windows.

Subject: [Snort-users] Syslog on W2K
I am using snort 1.8.6 on W2K.
I wish to log to the mysql database, but also log to a syslog server
using the commands below;
output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT host=X.X.X.X
output database: alert, mysql, user=username dbname=database
sensor_name=sensor1 password=password host=X.X.X.X
When I run snort, I get a warning message stating "Unrecognized syslog
facility/priority: host=X.X.X.X"
Has anyone successfully got snort to syslog to a remote syslog server?
If so, can you let me know how you did it?
Also, has anyone got anything like Swatch on a W32 machine to report
from Syslog Files?
