Today we needed to get some logging in place for a router and switch at a client's office. This is a dreaded Windows only network, so I needed to find some options for a syslog server that would be able to run on Windows 2003 platform. Of course in the Window's world, I'm always amazed by the amount of software that you need to pay for. In my eyes, a simple syslog server is... well, simple. I guess I just don't get it. I was able to find a free one, and one that works fairly well. It's called Kiwi Syslog Daemon. I was impressed on how easy it was to set up and get running. Literally it was a matter of minutes to get installed and to start observing router logs.
