yes, since i never got that other option to work, i use kiwi on the sensor
itself, and have that syslog forward to my main syslog server, that part is
free, logging to db/sql and some of the archival purposes require the
registered version, but simple forwarding is in the free version., then
again, 50$ aint too bad for what it does. well worth it IMO.

  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
