[Snort-users] Syslog on W2K

For stability I would recommend 3com's free syslog server for Windowz

http://support.3com.com/software/utilities_for_windows_32_bit.htm  <-- for a bunch of goodies

ftp://ftp.3com.com/pub/utilbin/win32/3CSyslog.zip  <-- for the syslog server

It runs great on 2K & XP

  works well but randomly inserts fixed string in syslog output in
  the freeware version.

    HI Michael,

     

    So do I need to setup a syslog server on the sensor itself, and then either use that for logging, or forward syslogs to my main syslog server?

     

    I don't know of any good freeware ones as I use Kiwi myself.

     

    Thanks

     

    Steve

    Steve,

     

    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.

    Hi,

     

    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?

     

    Thanks

     

    Steve
