Introduction

In case of  trouble shooting and bug hunting a Syslog server might be a very valuable tool

Install Syslog Server on a local Windows computer

If there is no syslog server available in your network, it is easy to setup a simple server on a Microsoft Windows computer in your network.

  • Download Sylog Receiver from Secure.IP GmbH or use other syslog server.
  • unzip MegaLogSyslogTestReceiverV2.zip into the desired directory
  • execute "MegaLog Syslog Test Receiver V2.exe"

Syslog server setup :

  • bind the public IP address of the windows machine to the server


  • select the folder and enter the name of the logfile


  • start server


everything is already done! (smile)
