[Snort-users] Snort Syslog Alerts on Win32

Unfortunately, there is no syslog daemon on the WinNT4 Snort box -- only on
the other server.  :{  I was hoping that like Cisco and other network
devices I could direct the syslog messages from Snort to another server.

I think you'd need to do this in your syslog daemon.  You can make it easy
on yourself by making snort log to 'Local1' if you'd like.

I would like to configure Snort (version 1.8.6 running on a WinNT4 
box) to send Snort alerts to a syslog server on another WinNT4 box. 
The "output alert_syslog" is pretty straight forward, accept I am not 
sure of how to direct output this to another host???  The docs I have 
do not specify any "host=" option.
