I have a Windows XP machine. On this machine, I would like to view data sent by my Tomato router, which is running syslogd, which I can configure to send out syslog data instead of logging internally. I know of some Linux utilities to do this, but I need to be able to capture the log being sent on Windows as well. Does anyone know of a suitable program?

A google search for windows syslog server returns lots of likely looking results. It looks like 3Com has a free one.

That's odd, I googled last night and didn't find any free ones. Guess my searching prowess must be getting on a bit. Thanks, I will test that now. :) – Matthieu Cartier Jan 27 '11 at 18:28
Seems to not work on Windows XP, which I guess is because it was made before it reached RTM. Will try some others in that google. – Matthieu Cartier Jan 27 '11 at 18:32
If nothing else works, you could probably run syslogd under cygwin. – larsks Jan 27 '11 at 19:19
