Re: Logging server.

I've seen quite a few recommendations for Kiwi on Windows (http://www.kiwisyslog.com/). I'm not a Linux user, but on FreeBSD, the default syslogd works very well. I know some people using syslog-ng (http://www.balabit.com/products/syslog-ng/) on both FreeBSD and Solaris. It handles all device syslog messages just fine, and will also work on Linux.

Re: Logging server.

I'm not sure there is one true default syslogd for Linux. FreeBSD is a complete operating system, so it includes its own syslogd. With Linux, you have numerous distributions that each do their own thing. To play it safe, syslog-ng is a syslog daemon that works on a variety of UNIX operating systems.
