Anyone know of a good syslog tutorial?

  • I'd like to setup pfSense to email alerts on events such as packet loss or gateway down (failover events), etc.

    I was disappointed in researching to find this isn't supported, and it's suggested to setup a syslog server.

    I downloaded one on a Windows machine (Syslog Watcher) but I really don't know how to configure it.  The logs are a mess, instead of being nicely organized into tabs like on the pfSense box, it's all just dumped into one window and I have no idea what flags I'm looking for to configure alerts.

    I'd love to see a good tutorial on this if anyone has any suggestions.
