Third Party Syslog on Windows LMS

Fortunately,  I’ve previously been referred to the following whitepaper here with regards to installing a standalone syslog daemon on an LMS server.

However, I’m wondering if anyone has successfully implemented the local mode solution on a Windows instance of LMS?

If so, what edition of syslog-ng did you use?

Or alternatively, has anyone successfully installed another syslog receiver on a Windows LMS server that was able to forward messages to both internally to LMS and additional NMS hosts whilst maintaining the original source host details?

Thanks for any feedback.

Re: Third Party Syslog on Windows LMS

You added the tag, lms2.6.  In LMS 2.6, the only supported syslog server is the crmlog server which ships with LMS.  Not even syslog-ng was tested.  The syslog-ng support will require LMS 3.2.  As for setting this up, I have only done it on Solaris.

It might be easiest to install Cygwin on your server, build syslog-ng under Cygwin (with spoofing enabled), then use the Cygwin syslog-ng binary.  Finding a Windows native binary, or trying to build it with Win32 (if even possible) would probably be too much of a hassle.
