Disabling/Forwarding syslog to a different server/port????

Hello

We have recently purchased CW2000 and have installed it on the same machine as our WhatsUpGold application which also uses Syslog messages for alerting etc. We monitor more than just cisco devices and would like syslog messages to be forwarded/copied to the WhatsUpGold application on a port other than 514. Is this possible, or do I have to disable Syslog in CiscoWorks, and if so, how do I go about doing so and what repercussions would this have on the functionality of CW2000? Thanks very much

From the Whats Up Gold on-line help within the app: The Syslog runs on Port 514 bt default. This port can be configured through the registry at the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ipswitch\WhatsUp\LogSettings\SyslogPort

Hello

Thanks for the reply, but I know how to change the port within WhatsUp, there is a nice easy field to change right within the program. The problem is getting CW2000 to forward/copy syslog messages to this other port. We have about 1000 devices all using syslog port 514, and it would be a terrible affair to try to change that port accross all devices. Thanks

Is Device Fault Manager (DFM) also installed with CW2000 bundle?

Yes, we do have DFM installed, as well as RME and NGenius, and a few others. THanks

One possible workaround would be to use a Remote Syslog collector. This remote collector can be installed on a Unix or Windows system

and will accept messages and forward them on a different port. There is a step by step instruction on this RSAC in the help files for ciscoworks and as well at the link:
