Does anyone know of a free, decent syslog server for download? I know Kiwi used to be free, but since SolarWinds bought them, they are no longer free.
SolarWinds is still offering a free version of Kiwi, in addition to an enhanced licensed version. Here is a link comparing the two versions:
Splunk is really a great took which I would recommend to investigate to further check on the received data.
But it seems to be a better way to have a dedicated syslog service and then hook to that with splunk.
I would either simply run a dedicated linux vm with a syslog server (and possible splunk on that one as well).
An other option on a windows system could be to use cygwin and then install syslog-ng,
that would also give you the flexibility of a more advanced syslog server, but I would prefer linux or bsd.
These links are just googled:

I've been using 3CDaemon. It has "TFTP Server", "FTP Server", "SysLog Server" and "TFTP Client".
You can get it from http://www.firewall.cx/downloads/doc_download/16-1-3cdaemon-server-a-client.html
I have tried 3cdaemon tool for syslog messages but these logs are not saved anywhere.
Can you please tell me how these logs will be saved automatically?

I hope others find this helpful. When you point a device's Syslog IP pointer to your workstation's interface IP then run Wireshark and start a capture using the same interface, Wireshark actually picks up and decodes the packets sent from the device as Syslog and of course one can save the capture file.
