    I have a Novell suse 10 linux box which runs syslog-ng. I am trying to redirect the syslog messages to a Windows 2003 server.

    I have setup the syslog-ng.conf (changes are in italics):
    source src {
    # include internal syslog-ng messages
    # note: the internal() soure is required!

    # the following line will be replaced by the
    # socket list generated by SuSEconfig using
    # variables from /etc/sysconfig/syslog:
    @[email protected]

    # uncomment to process log messages from network:


    destination mail { file("/var/log/mail"); };
    destination postfix_mail { udp("" port (514)); };
    log { source(src); filter(f_mail); destination(mail); };
    log { source(src); filter(f_mail); destination(postfix_mail); };

    The Windows server is open on udp port 514. But it doesnt seem to reflect anything on the Windows box? Do I need to make any more changes on the Windows end?

    Thanks for all your help in advance.
