    www.papertrail.com a free web based syslog solution.

    You can forward syslog requests through a windows server or non windows server using:

    The modify the script as shown below:

    modify or replace nxlog.conf with the following:

    define ROOT C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog
    Moduledir %ROOT%\modules
    CacheDir  %ROOT%\data
    Pidfile %ROOT%\data\nxlog.pid
    SpoolDir  %ROOT%\data
    LogFile %ROOT%\data\nxlog.log
     <extension syslog="">Module xm_syslog</extension> 
    # Monitor application log files
    
        Module im_udp
        Host    0.0.0.0
        Port    514
    
     <processor input_transformer="">Module pm_transformer
      OutputFormat syslog_rfc5424</processor> 
    
    <output syslogout="">
      Module om_udp
      Host YOUR_HOST.papertrailapp.com
      Port YOUR_PORT
    </output>
    
     <route 1="">Path syslogin => input_transformer => syslogout</route> 
    
    

    Modify host and port as needed.
