      Question NetGear v2 Router Syslog

      Hi,

      I am logging the DG934G syslog output to file using the free syslog server from 3Com, WSyslogD.exe. This works in the ideal way, simply running as a Windows Service.

      WSyslogD worked fine with the syslog output from my NetGear RT328 ISDN2 router back in the days before ADSL, but with the DG934G it has an irritating problem - there is no CR LF appended to each report line. In other words the syslog file is just a stream of text rather than one line per report as it should be.

      It is straightforward to edit the syslog file, clicking where the end of line should be and then keying Return, but this is rather too much hassle for a lazy chap like me.

      Any ideas how I might easily create a line-by-line syslog file?

      Perhaps there is another free syslog daemon available that:
      1. can be configured to append CR LF to each report &
      2. keeps the syslog file?

      You could try Kiwi Syslog Daemon:

      Kiwi Enterprises - Kiwi Syslog Daemon Overview

      I used to use it with a Netgear DG834 v1 and it worked OK. Looking on the website I think it can be setup to run as a Windows service, but I haven't tried that myself.
