syslog parser

I will be using a Linux system to collect syslogs from PIX, and cisco router and switch. What is the best Windows-based syslog parser? Would it be better to simply use a Windows-based utility to do the IDS, port scanning, and other security?

Re: syslog parser

Either Linux or Windows both are OK to collect syslog messages. Linux has a built in syslog server. Where as in Windows based systems, you need to install syslog server. There are several Windows based syslog servers. e.g. KIWI, SolarWinds etc.

I dont get the second part of your question.

Thanks

Re: syslog parser

nmap for port scanning, and snort for IDS (either windows or linux, but linux side has more sigs written for it)
